In February 1962, in an apparent reference either to El Gar Kur’s invention or Kull-Ex’s, Superman muses that “I can only enter Kandor by having my exchange ray cause me to switch places with a similar-sized Kandorian person or creature.” Indeed, when Superman visits Kandor during this period, he arranges to exchange himself for his Kandorian friend [[Nim-Zee]], and then to reverse the exchange once his business in Kandor has been successfully concluded (S No. 151/3: “Superman’s Greatest Secret!”).

By July 1962, however, the “exchange ray” has been superseded by a more technologically advanced device. “Welcome to Kandor!” greets the Kandorian scientist [[Lon-Es]] enthusiastically after he has used the new invention to reduce [[Supergirl]] to microscopic size and transport her to his laboratory inside the bottle. “You have been reduced in size and transported here by a new ray we’ve developed which is better than the exchange-ray! Our teleport ray transports one person at a time. . . and it isn’t necessary to exchange a Kandorian for an Earth person during the transference, as before!” (S No.154/2: “Krypton’s First Superman!”).
  
 
Inside Kandor, where "Krypton's gravity conditions are duplicated," Superman becomes an ordinary human being, without super-powers, although he regains use of his powers the moment he exits from the bottle and re-enters the earthly environment.  Kryptonite has no effect on Superman while he remains in Kandor, simply because he is only an ordinary mortal there.
