Magnetic field may not be strong enough to affect PM

Unless the magnetic cable is placed on top of the pacemaker, the magnetic field may not be strong enough to affect the pm. You may wish give it a test it before replacing.

Hello,

I believe the magnetic power plug is on the back of the device, which you would never be within 6 inches of for an extended period of time. I wouldn't worry about it at all.

Those iMacs are awesome!

Take care

too small

think the magnet is too small. Keep in mind you need a good size magnet within 2" of our device to cause an issue. Just don't lay anything near your device. I have a 24" imac. Never had an issue.

You know you're wired when...

You can feel your fingers and toes again.

To tell you the truth I never even give it a second thought. While growing up it never stopped me from doing anything and to this day my girlfriend or my kids need to remind me that I have one!
