Product Description

This ingenious device electronically counts your coins as you save! The quality LCD displays a running total of all the coins you deposit. A great place for all that loose change or to save for something special. This electronic money box is a child's dream come true. And especially in the current economic climate, it works equally well for adults. Encouraging saving and simultaneously registering the number of coins inserted into the box, it has a spectacularly luminescent and spacey feel for a very worthy and down-to-earth application. The product features a reset button and requires 2 x AA batteries (not included). Manufactured to a very high standard, the Counting Money Jar is strong and resilient. The money in the above picture is not included! Nobody will dare to "borrow" from your jar!

In theory an excellent idea.
However, as others have mentioned the unit has numerous flaws.
It takes me about a year to fill this jar (about £80 worth of change).
During this period, it would zero itself several times.
It is also not great at seeing 5p pieces - fine for the larger coins.
Avoid like the plague - spend the money on using the Coinstar machines at Supermarkets instead.

Before I got this I collected all my money in an old CD box, so when I wanted to know how much I had saved in here, I had to count every single coin and it used to take me ages to do it. Now I have a running total of all the coins in this jar and every time I put a new coin in it tells me the new total. The only thing with this jar is sometimes if you push a coin part way through and then take it out again it will still register a coin (I occasionally passed 10ps off as 5ps this way when I first put my big load of coins through). It even lets you adjust the amount when you take money out. Great fun for kids, and a good way for them to know how much money is in there.

The design is the problem but you don't want to pay 10 times this for a real working one, so either you buy nothing or you accept this as a quasi novelty.

The count is performed by means of how far two contact points are moved when a coin is depressed. A penny has a smaller diameter than a £2 coin for instance. However, if you hesitate (and sometimes if you do not), it registers a coin other then the one you are using before you finish pushing it through the slot. It is a cheap and inaccurate tool.

It is actually a lot bigger than you think and if using £1 coins as well as shrapnel, you could easily get a couple of hundred pounds in there.

Overall it is a glorified plastic bottle (worth ?) with a rather useless counting mechanism. On that score I mark it as zero as it just cannot perform its primary function. However, it has novelty value and for some kids, that is worth the few pounds it costs.

Here's the coin counter in use.

I had high hopes for this both for use as a 'money box' for saving and for counting loose change for exchange at the bank. However, I found that mine seldom counted correctly - even in this video after resetting the counter to zero by the time I'd screwed the lid back onto the jar, it was registering 10p and then miscounted 2 coins.

I tested the counter with 5 different sets of brand new AA batteries. Maybe I was just unlucky in receiving a faulty product but I was disappointed both by the quality and the erratic, unreliable performance along with its inability to count accurately - which rather defeats its purpose!

After reading other reviews and the fact my in-laws had purchased the product and theirs has worked, I decided to go ahead and purchase one for husband for fathers day. My advice don't bother. It just doesn't work. We have bought 3 lots of batteries for it and still nothing. It is one of those things that will collect dust and eventually be thrown away.

This simply did not work! You have to force coins in quite hard, it then displays an incorrect number on the counter. Instructions are about 15 words total. Dont buy.

I recive a lot of tips in my job so I used to drop them in a old bottle, Then I seen this product and orderd it. When I started to use it fantastic the next day I was putting a 2p in and it registed as a 5p, then the screen would go blank or it would just not reconise the coins I was puttin in. Waste of time there must be something better out there somewhere. SO DONT WASTE MONEY ON THIS KEEP YOUR CASH AND IF YOU FIND SOMETHING THAT WORKS LET ME KNOW. I am no way putting the seller down its the product thats bad.
