The NFC Patch Kit is a passive device that allows you to extend the reach of your NFC reader. The kit consists of a patch and an antenna that once affixed to your reader’s scan surface, provides a stethoscope-like extension where tags can be read (or written). Due to it’s modular design, you can mix and match patches and antennas to get best read (or write) results. The NFC Patch Kit is effective in solving the backside-scan limitation of consumer devices with NFC, allowing devices to be used as self-service kiosks and other digital signage solutions.
The NFC Patch Kit comes with one NFC Antenna (get more here) and can extend your NFC reach by as much as 3ft (36″). When stuck to the rear of these devices, the NFC Patch and Antenna extends the read (or write) range of your device without compromising functionality. We’ve specifically designed and tuned the product for the Nexus 7 Gen2 (2013) but it has been proven to work with other NFC devices as well. Check the Forums for other use cases.
Installing the NFC Patch on your device is straight forward. Just use the double sided adhesive to stick the NFC Patch so that it aligns with and sits over the surface where you normally scan NFC tags on your device. That’s it! Now connect the NFC Antenna using the included connector cable to instantly read (or write) tags anywhere the NFC Antenna can reach. Take a look at the NFC Patch Kit in action!

Ordered this product and found it absolutely fit the bill of what I had in mind regarding use cases. I ordered the wrong extension and after email staff for customer support there was promptly a response with extremely detailed instructions as to what to do next to rectify the mistake I made. Richard, the support agent was more than helpful, clear and concise and I could not recommend using this product more.
