Minelab Equinox 600 Metal Detector

Minelab Equinox 600 Metal Detector

Product Review (submitted on May 4, 2018):
Truthfully I'd say 4.8 stars, only because of lack of included charger block. Received my pre-ordered Equinox 600 yesterday. Kellyco had estimated about a month and they were spot on!. Awesome customer service as with each of my orders through them. Box arrived in perfect condition. All parts were in the box. Assembly is quick and easy. A quick test gave me the numbers of it's display for the various gold, silver and coins for which I dirt fish. The machine is light, nicely balanced and adjusted perfectly to my height (over 6 feet). My ONLY disappointment is that the company elected to use a USB rechargeable battery and NOT include a USB brick to plug into the wall. There is a large sheet included in the box saying that you can use your standard Apple or Samsung phone charger as they are 2 amp output chargers. Strangely, we have 3 different Samsung phone chargers and they only output 1 AMP. Very disheartening after seeing the giant WARNING to NOT use a 1 amp output charger block as it will overheat and shut down. Only use the standard laptop .5 amp (which takes up to 18 hours to charge your machine) or use the "standard" 2 amp output phone chargers, which mine aren't. Luckily, my iPad charger is the correct voltage and a 2 amp output, so the machine charged in just under 4 hours as advertised. Still, selling what is effectively a $650 paperweight without an included charger and then wanting customers to pay an estimated $40 dollars EXTRA for what Minelab calls an "accessory" which is REALLY "necessary equipment", leaves a bitter taste in the mouth. This isn't Kellyco's fault, it was Minelab's poor decision. Anyway, off to the beach tomorrow to do some much-anticipated salt-water dirt-fishing. Happy Hunting everyone.
