Remember Harry Potter's invisibility cloak? Anyone wearing it would be invisible. While not exactly the same thing, the Scottevest Blackout Pocket gives you the same results for your smartphone.

Haha agreed. This is like crap from an infomercial for paranoid suckers. "Even with the battery removed you'll still be tracked." What a joke.

Fewer and fewer phones are being produced with removable batteries. While the ad takes some liberties, removable batteries are definitely disappearing.

Well, should a person be so fortunate as to have a technologically unstable stalker, the utility may prove valuable. Just be sure to carry extra spare tires in case your assailant finds you and slashes your tires.
