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!
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.
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!
