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!

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.

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.

I bought this because I really wanted a money box that would show me exactly how much money there is inside it, and this does exactly that which I am pleased about.

The only downside to buying this, and I knew this at the time I bought it - is that when you take money out of the box, obviously it won't know and the money count won't go down, therefore everytime I take money out of the jar, I find myself resetting the box and re-putting it all back in. Apart from that (which I can't really complain about, because I knew it didn't do this - and it's great if you want to save up money if you don't want to take any money out)I am pleased with my purcase because it does exactly what is described, it's easy to use and so far (i've had this for two months now) i've had no problems with it.

I highly recommend this if you're looking for a money box that you don't intend to take money out of, because this is perfect!

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.

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!

I wouldn't recommend this product. It can't seem to cope with more than 3 coins being put in, after which the counter resets to zero. It also cannot recognise the coins you are putting in. It thought a 50p was a 20p, and a 20p was 5p! Absolute waste of money.
