Some software and hardware updates now available for the QED.More  QED firmware updates (inc Auto GB  option) just announced here. New  QED hardware updates/options and pictures will be posted  first here  as they become available.

Another satisfied QED user! QED user report for 9 days detecting! User loves it, found it easy to use,found gold with it and he prefers it to his 5000! Also a report on a QED used at the beach for coin shooting.QED users reporting in with their multi ounce gold finds with the QED!
From  another QED user today:"Been out and about today testing and comparing against other machines etc in ground that has been horrible in the past.Bround balancing Ive found very simple and easy.'m using the Nokia booster but need a little more sound/threshold.Otherwise no complaints from me, very impressed."
and :"My QED with the 8” commander on it, out performed my SDC Got bits that don't register on my scales SDC has since been sold"
"My QED is terrific. Lightweight, very sensitive and screams at me when it hits any target. The Detect shaft and the 11" ultra sensing coil is a top quality fitout. I attached an external speaker which added under 200gms of weight in total and still remains very well balanced so i never feel fatigued after many hours of swinging."

Stinky  Pete :http://www.detech-metaldetectorsaustralia.com.au/  and Goldsearch Dunolly are the  Australian distributors for the QED.
This is the only forum where you can talk directly with the designer/ manufacturer of the QED and  also some very experienced QED users.
Jrbeatty and Reg Wilson  and  Yellowfin  (or Doug here for that matter!)have NO vested  or pecuniary interests(or secret deals or cash for comment or any other undisclosed benefits )in the QED other than using it to find gold which it is doing very successfully! The ONLY people deriving  an income from the QED(other than finding good gold) are the 2 approved retailers and Bugwhiskers! The ONLY investor in the QED is Bugwhiskers!
I have never met Jrbeatty or Reg Wilson at Howards house or ANY other location!

Hi
I like the upgraded version and I'm considering purchasing the QED. Is it possible to run a 3.7v battery with a boost power supply circuit with the qed. I have a 3.7v 10000mah lithium ion cell and charger.
Regards Martin




The Booster would require a lot of filtering with some large electrolytic caps to get rid of any spikes/noise.

The pics below show detail of the "new model".
Please note that apart from the free upgrade available for all early models, the new model (variation actually) offers improvements in ergonomics but no improvement in detection distance over the early models.

It has been designed around the Detech handle that has much to offer re weight and collapsible down to 2 foot long.
Things to note:
The detector box mounted under the cuff helps to counterbalance the weight of the coil.
There are 2 * 18650 Lithium battery sockets at the rear with a protective cover. There is also a power in socket for those who want to do their own thing re powering. Additional side boards that attach with velco will be available. They hold 4 * 18650 batteries. With 4 per side and 2 at the rear and using 3400mAH cells detection time will be around 80 hours. Keep in mind that each additional cell weighs around 50g.
The whole front panel is backlit.
The early models can also be converted to this new format. The upgrade work is being outsourced so I don't know the prices yet.
Both 3.5mm and 1/4" audio sockets are mounted on the front endcap of the detector box.

The detector as shown with 2 battery cells and a 14" coil weighs just 2.1Kg

We know the QED  won't run DD coils but will it run A1 coils?
BW hopes in the next week or so to  answer this question so stay tuned. Today  the QED(14"mono)  with the  expanded mode was  compared with a  7000 and a 1gram nugget over  BW's test patch of very nasty mineralized ground. I won't disclose the results at this at this stage because the test needs to be repeated.If the results are  repeatable then many people are going to shocked  at just how well the QED performed compared to the 7000!

Rear connectors look better and better placed  happy face happy face

would think 1 MGB - manual ground balance , 2 - THS-A  - old Bais  and 3 - THS-B - old Volume ...
could be wrong .. was wrong before once  happy face

So when are we ready for another upgrade with the AGB ?

I think it should now be possible with the new rear plate to set up the QED with 2 noika speakers in  stereo and place them on each shoulder?

More pictures will be posted as they become available. The AGB is auto ground balance.
doug smile

Its important to note that the AGB is NOT an auto tracking GB.

BW has just told me the following:
1 is the original GB. MGB is manual ground balance. THS B. is the old BIAS. THS A is the old VOLUME. THRESHOLD ALL.
