Metal detecting is a fun hobby for adults, but it’s also fun for the kids. Now, with the Bounty Hunter BHJS Junior Metal Detector, kids can participate in the searches for treasure, too!
Since the detector doesn’t weigh much and it has an ergonomic handle, it’s super easy for kids of all ages to use. The Bounty Hunter BHJS is a great beginner metal detector for kids – even if they’ve never used one before. It’s like an adult version, yet scaled down and made simpler so that kids can quickly understand how to use it.
The detector has plenty of ability to locate finds. It has the power to find treasure no matter what type of soil the child is searching in. Whether at the beach or at home in the backyard, the detector can find anything made of metal.
This model has a lot of sensitivity, which enables the tool to recognize items buried beneath the soil – even if those items are the size of a coin. For these smaller items, the detector can locate them in up to 5 inches below ground.
That ability to find treasures extends if the treasure items are bigger. The detector can pick up the location of those bigger items even up to 3 feet below the ground.
The features of the BHJS model include and indicator meter with numbered strength levels to show kids whether the signal is strong or not. If the signal is strong, it’s an indicator of a good find. The closer the user gets to the treasure, the stronger the signal becomes. Kids will be able to read the signal by the easy to see area on the target indicator that’s shaded bright green.
Like the adult metal detectors, this child model also has Discrimination control. This feature will ignore the soil’s iron content as well as worthless objects and will focus only on the good finds.
The Bounty Hunger junior model is sturdy and kids get the hang of using it fast because it doesn’t have a lot of dials to figure out. The detector has just two dials for indicating treasure.
It’s so simple that even kids 5 years old can handle the detector. Even though this is a junior detector, some adults do use the detector as well. The detector is kid sized at 10 x 9 x 57 inches. It’s powered by 9v batteries and has a battery tester as an additional accessory. The detector comes with a one-year warranty.
