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

Nice construction, comes with a tab on the battery to protect from draining during shipment. UV lamp quite bright.
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
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
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
