5.0 out of 5 stars Superb quality detector & very easy to use, 5 Jun. 2014
This review is from: The Magenta 'Bat5'. Digital Quartz Bat Detector locater listener (Apparel)
Let's put it this way for the technology side of things this Magenta Bat5 detector represents superb value for money due to the fact that it is able to pick up a substantial amount of Ultrsound frequencies that are in audible to the majority of adults.

Incredibly Magenta manufacture and assemble all their Bat detectors here in England which makes their asking price somewhat of a bargain when virtually all electronic items are made and assembled in China or the Far East.

The hearing of young children is more acute than say a thirty year old adult so a child can often hear the callings of various bat species when they are in audible to the older person.

This Bat5 detector has the same technology as it's slightly cheaper brother the Bat4 but you are paying for the slightly more sensitive digital display with it's very precise reading.

The one thing you will notice about either Magenta product is their superb build quality and their ability to use ordinary AAA battery's when most other detectors use the smaller less powerful 9V battery.

If you do a search on what the internal electronics of one of these detectors looks like you will soon realise you are buying a quality product, a product that is incredibly easy to use, you just point the detector in any given direction and if a bat is within calling distance it will pick up its call and convert it electronically to something a human ear can listen to.

A very popular frequency appears to be 50Khz, with many of the more common bat species such as the Pipistrel using this frequency.

Imagine tuning in a digital DAB radio, using this Magenta Bat5 is exactly the same except you are tuning into frequencies in audible to most peoples ears.

If you want a less complicated detector buy the cheaper Bat4 but if you need to know the exact frequency a particular bat species is using then the digital read out of the Bat5 will come into its own.

Either way you are buying a quality product manufactured and assembled here in England which today is a real rarity.

It's a product that if treated with care should last many years and who knows you may discover a potentially rare Bat species living in your loft.
