Bounty Hunter BHJS Junior Metal Detector Review

Whilst the Bounty Hunter BHJS Junior Metal Detector is designed with kids in mind, it’s still loaded with all the features you’d expect from a full size model – just scaled down so it’s easy for younger treasure hunters to strike gold.

The Bounty Hunter BHJS Junior Metal Detector might be marketed as a kids toy, but in reality it’s a very capable gadget and feels well put together. It’s been shrunk to just the right size for children and weighs in at less than 2 pounds. This, coupled with a comfy ergonomic handle means it’s easy and comfortable to use for extended periods.

The BHJS is capable of detecting objects up to 5 inches underground. The display panel is large, clear and simple to understand. You also have two dials, one for controlling the power of the detector and an eliminator dial which you can use to ignore smaller items or those made of specific metals that you aren’t interested in.

Whilst it’s a fun gadget for the kids to play around with, it can also be used as a handy tool if you lost something valuable to you like jewelry or keys for example, or if you need to check where pipes and cables lie on your property. The low price of this junior model means it’s ideal for this purpose rather than spending twice the amount on a full size version.

Whilst it’s small in size, the Bounty Hunter BHJS Junior Metal Detector is big on features and quality. It’s excellent fun for the kids – but also proves to be a worthy metal detector for more grown-up (i.e boring) tasks as well!
