Top 6 Tips For Choosing Your Metal Detector

Top 6 Tips For Choosing Your Metal Detector

You’re probably looking for the perfect guide to get the perfect metal detector for you, so don’t worry, it Detector Power’s here to solve your problem!

Think about what kind of search you want to do

There are detectors that work better in the field, others that are more useful on the beach, other submersible metal detectors. There are also those good to look for coins or those that we use to find some treasure of the war, for this reason, the first thing is to have very clear which will be the specific use although also there are detectors that are more all-terrain.

Choose a good weight detector

Our recommendation is that you take into account that it is always better to choose between the metal detectors that have a lighter weight if you are going to be looking for a treasure on the beach or in the countryside because you will use it for quite long periods of time.

Low frequency or pulses?

In the market you can get two types of detector based on the technology they use:
VLF or low frequency: These being the most common that we can get and discriminate between different metals. This type of metal detectors are more vulnerable to different types of soil or soil mineralization.
Pulses and impulses: These do not discriminate between metals except, sometimes, some that are designed to discriminate iron from other metals. These are unaffected or minimally affected by mineralization which makes them perfect for submersible metal detectors to search for objects in depth.


Pinpointers are among the most useful tools you can get, no matter if you are an experienced user or if you are a beginner doing your first treasure hunt. It is a locator that precisely locates your target, so you will avoid the whole problem of making a hole too big when you have to dig to get to you target.

Numbering of metals

Metal detectors have a feature that can be extremely useful and this is to designate a specific numerical range to each type of metal that is underground within the values located within 100 numbers and this will vary according to the model and brand.

Plate size

One of the advantages of a large plate in metal detectors is to get a greater depth search although you can get to overlook small objects, its disadvantage, as you may have imagined is that the bigger will be more difficult to manipulate which could be somewhat uncomfortable in certain cases.
A medium plate will combine good depth searching without ignoring targets small and as for underground gold detectors, it will be very good to use small plate to find the gold nuggets.
