I don't buy that you could do that as a good tactic.

The devices are made of tough stuff. We've seen Bardiche and RH take an exploding Jewel Seed at essentially point-blank range, an explosion that was "loud" enough that the Arthra detected it from several dimensions away. But we know that normal cartridge use isn't on that same energy level (mostly because, otherwise, the Knights would have stood out like comets in A's). That explosion did manage to damage the devices, but they weren't completely wrecked; cracked, but not shattered. Considering that ready-to-use cartridges are in containers that are made of the same stuff, that implies that you'd have to hit it with a tremendous amount of juice in order to bust the cartridges inside - an amount that would knock the mage silly anyway.
