I have tried the Tunze Care Magnet in the past, but I didn’t like that they didn’t float. But now it’s another story with the Care Booster.

Did you ever had a tool that you thought needed one feature to be perfect? That’s exactly what happened with me and the Care Magnet, and as soon as I heard about the Tunze Care Booster I wanted to have it, hoping that it could be, finally, the perfect tool…

And it really is! The Care Booster is a polystyrene cover that goes over the Care Magnet and has a couple of clamps that attaches the Care Magnet to the Care Booster as you can see in the following pictures. The package contains two Care Boosters. If you scroll through the pictures you can see how it all comes together.

The Care Magnet, if you don’t know, is a very unique magnet and a glass scraper. The blade is made from a synthetic material that can’t damage or scratch the glass. It’s sold with another blade, supplied with the model 220.015, one short and the other longer in order to obtain a different pressure on the glass. The distance between magnet and glass is 3 millimeters, which means it’s too close to collect sand and scratch the surface of the glass. And, to me, the most interesting feature is the small blade supplied, which is sort of like a renovated Easy Blade, that can be used also as a glass-cleaner scraper. This isn’t a real blade, it’s more solid and less sharp.

Pictured above is the assembled magnet, the other Care Booster, and the accessories.

The idea of the Care Booster is pretty simple, but it works! The magnet is very handy, and I think that for 15mm it’s the perfect magnet: light, handy, and with a float that brings the magnet up to the surface.

The following pictures show the simple attaching process.

The Tunze Care Booster is made from a material similar to polystyrene, though we don’t have any other information about it. The selling price is extremely low: 12,80 euro ($15 US) vat included. The Tunze Care Magnet, on the other hand, costs 32,40 euro ($37 US).

I definitely suggest using the tools together! Try them and let us know what you think!
