Magnum synthetic urine review

Magnum synthetic urine used to be a big deal. We still sell it in the smoke shop where I work, but I haven’t felt comfortable recommending it to customers for some time.

I thought I would do a proper Magnum synthetic urine review, because I’m feeling people are getting caught out using this stuff to try and pass a drug test. It’s not their fault, the Internet is still full of old information about Magnum synthetic urine working.

So what is Magnum synthetic urine, why are reviews so bad nowadays, and are there alternatives out there that are better?

What Is Magnum Synthetic Urine?

Magnum synthetic urine has been around for a long time, and it used to be quite a trusted brand just like Upass and Xstream synthetic urine

In fact, the company claim it’s the best “fetish” synthetic urine around, saying:

“Even the lab can’t tell the difference between this synthetic urine and a clean sample of human urine.”

So despite now labeling it, literally, as for “fetish only”, the marketing talk obviously implies that it can pass a lab test as well. I think this is why so many people still wonder does Magnum synthetic urine work, and are then really surprised when Magnum synthetic urine failed them.

Magnum Synthetic Urine Instructions

Instructions for using Magnum synthetic urine are pretty straightforward, in line with almost every other brand out there: 

  1. Mix the powder with the liquid uric acid.
  2. Heat it up in the microwave for 10 seconds, look at the temperature strip, and microwave it another five seconds if still not at the correct temperature (94-100 degrees Fahrenheit).
  3. Open heating pad, shake it well, then use an elastic band to attach it to the side of the pre-heated synthetic urine sample. It’s the shaking that activates the heat pad, which will make it produce heat to keep the temperature correct. 

The sample should stay within the right temperature range for a couple of hours, giving you plenty of time to submit your sample.

Does Magnum Synthetic Urine Work?

I don’t think it’s heat that is the problem with people finding out that Magnum synthetic urine failed.

I think one reason could be the Magnum synthetic urine shelf life. Although it can last two years without mixing, once you’ve mixed it you have a maximum of seven days to use it. I suspect some people get caught out by this.

Also, in terms of doing a proper Magnum synthetic urine review, I have to point out that it’s formula has not been updated for a long time, so it’s just not up to date with current drug testing facility standards.

Yes, Magnum Synthetic Urine Failed

People are finding that Magnum synthetic urine failed primarily because the formula is not up to date, that’s the bottom line.

The problem is that lab testing has moved on. A few years ago, a basic five panel drug test would be incredibly simple, but as technology and testing techniques have improved, so it’s much cheaper and easier to detect more natural, and unnatural, substances in a sample.

For example, some testing labs now check for the presence of artificial preservatives, such as biocide, which is something obviously not present in human urine.

So in terms of answering the question: does Magnum synthetic urine work, the answer is unequivocally no it probably won’t.

I say probably, because there is a small chance that if you have a basic pre-employment five panel drug test, and the lab doing the tests is not cutting-edge, and only checks for the basics like the presence of urea and uric acid, then you might pass.

But I’m going to tell you exactly why it is really not worth the risk.

Synthetic Urine Brands That Work

How to pass a drug test for probation

Magnum synthetic urine costs almost the same as another brand called Quick Fix. Quick Fix is now in its 6.2 formula, and you can even get your money back if you have an old formula product.

That should tell you everything you need to know about how high quality synthetic urine products move with the times, and are proud of what they do, backing up their product with guarantees.

You will never get the same deal with Magnum synthetic urine, which is why this review is important. Using it is risky, and when the price difference is small, why on earth would you risk not getting a job, not keeping your job, or even losing your probation using Magnum?

If you want spend roughly the same amount of money, then get the latest formula Quick Fix 6.2 for 39$. It’s a much better product, comes with a high quality heating pad, and it doesn’t have loads of negative reviews online like Magnum. It really works.

If you have a little more money to spend, then the gold standard in synthetic urine products is Sub Solution.

It doesn’t contain biocide, and it contains more than 20 chemical markers present in real human urine. It really is the most complete synthetic urine, looking like the real thing, smelling like the real thing, and testing like the real thing.

On top of that, Sub Solution doesn’t have a heat pad, it contains heat activator powder. You add it to the sample, and agitate it. This heats the liquid. All you have to do is add a little bit of powder at a time until you get the sample to within human body temperature.

Just before you go into the lab, check the sample, and if it’s cooled at all, you can just add a tiny bit more activator powder to get it up to the correct temperature.

No need for a microwave, no need to be constantly worrying about the temperature of the sample.

You can order Sub Solution here.

So there you go, this is an honest Magnum synthetic urine review that says don’t use it.

I don’t recommend in the smoke shop, it’s had negative feedback from people failing both in the shop and online, and when there are far better options out there like Quick Fix and Sub Solution, why even consider it?
