Usefull but magnetic reading erratic – 2-in-1 Mini Money Detector with UV & MG Lights (4*LR44) Reviews

posted by pileon on 02/17/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Nice construction, comes with a tab on the battery to protect from draining during shipment. UV lamp quite bright.
Cons:
Magnetic readings are erratic, at least for Euro Bank notes. Never managed to capt the metallic strip. On the serial number of the banknote I have a positive identifications 1 time our to 5 y passing on the same bill several times
Other:
It is a little bigger than I have imagine. You will need a flat surface to place the banknote on it so that the MG scan can occur
Bottomline:
If it bips then most probably not face. But if it does not bip, most of the time it's either incorect handling or passing on the wrong place. Finally I am reluctant of using the MG option because of too many false alarms
