I’m thinking about making a fabric handbag/tote large enough to carry my kindlefire 8.9. I’m playing with the idea of making a flap with a magnetic closure to keep one of the large pockets closed.
I hesitate to use the magnetic closures because I thought that magnets tend to cause electronic devices (like computers or phones) problems and could damage them.
However, my kindlefire cover/case that I bought through Amamzon has magnets in the edges to keep it shut. Also, If I’m not mistaken when I close the cover, the magnets in the edges turn the kindlefire off somehow or another.
I decided to post this question and see if any of you folks have any thoughts on if the magnetic closures would damage an electronic handheld device like a phone or tablet.
I look forward to hearing any thoughts you may have bout this.
I am not a techy person at all, however I would think since many tech cases in the store have magnetic closure it should be fine. My nook case has a magnetic closure. I think the magnet would have to be significantly stronger than those craft ones to cause any problems.

I think you’re on to something about the magnet strength. I’m going to give it a try. Thanks again. 🙂
