Metal detector for junior treasure hunters!
Many hobbies can be rewarding, and metal detecting is right up there with the best! The National Geographic Junior Metal Detector can be used to find buried coins, jewellery and even antiques. Designed for the younger generation, this product works in the same way as the professional metal detectors in use all around the world. Switch it on and make a regular sweeping motion as you gradually walk forwards and in no time, you will be discovering metal artefacts which are otherwise invisible to the naked eye. When the metal detector locates a metal object it will start to emit a tone. The more solid and louder the tone, the stronger the signal, which indicates how close the object is to the coil. The unit also has a light that will illuminate when the signal strength is strong. By using both the signal light and the signal tone it's possible to discover many amazing things just below ground. Metal detecting is fascinating and in the winter months, you might find yourself running out of daylight hours. That's no problem for this unit as it features a detachable LED light source that will illuminate the scene as you guide the unit back and forth. Damp conditions are great for detecting objects as the signal is stronger and it's easier to dig into the surface! The Nat Geo metal detector can even be used in shallow water including streams and puddles. Included with the detector is a handy set of hints letting you know where you're like to find interesting items; on the beach or perhaps under a tree where people might have been sitting. The length of the unit is adjustable and the ergonomic design means it can be used comfortably over extended periods. This Nat Geo metal detector is designed to give many years of great service and, for extra peace of mind, registering the purchase means that you have a FIVE-YEAR warranty.
