Product description

Discover the brilliant world of bats with a Magenta bat detector. Bat calls are ultrasonic sounds, too high for humans to hear. Great for beginners, this heterodyne bat detector converts ultrasonic bat calls into sounds that are audible to humans, allowing you to hear and identify these fascinating creatures when they are flying nearby.

Converts bats' inaudible ultra-sonic sounds to frequencies in the range of human hearing, and allows you to identify which species of bats are present.

The Magenta 5 digital bat detector has a large frequency range of 10 kHz to 130 kHz. The extended low frequency coverage makes it suitable for some insects and birds, as well as bats.

It has a clear backlit four-digit LCD frequency display - Quartz accurate - giving high visibility day and night. The large digits are ideal for users who normally need reading glasses.

Brilliant Bat Detector
This is a brilliant entry level bat detector. Very easy to use and has a great LCD that’s very clear in day or night settings.
Seems very well made and manufactured in England which is always a bonus.

Great bit of kit.
Really good little device. Mine arrived yesterday abd within hours I was listening to Pipistrelles and Greater Horseshoes in my garden, really simple to use, just pop in some batteries and switch on, if there are bats about you'll be detecting them within minutes! Looking forward to letting my grandkids have a go on holiday, I'm sure they'll find it as fascinating as I do!
