QED coming soon!
Goldsearch Australia has been appointed the Australian Distributor for the QED.Check their website after  Wed 7th Dec 2016.
Global temperature goes from heat record to heat record, yet the sun is at its dimmest for half a century.
What is empirical  evidence?
Empirical evidence is information acquired by observation or experimentation. This data is recorded and analyzed by scientists and is a central process as part of the scientific method. Why is everything posted on climate by Inhere always horseshit?
Poor old  Inhere on finders still does not know the difference between weather and climate!The silly old goat seems to think because some places have recently had very cold weather that this brings into question  AGW!  Only right wing rabble rubbish climate deniers like horseshit Inhere don't  seem to understand  that AGW will mean that some regions of the earth will become colder!
Why is  onehalfgram :1/2 wit always wrong  on the QED?

It is possible to charge the whole box without removing batteries but it's not recommended to always do this. Each third or fourth change should be a "balanced" charge ie each cell individually. This maximises battery life and gives best performance.
The user would require a car charger with the correct socket for the battery box. Something I will look at soon.

Bugs, below is a question Dustyminer has raised about QED batteries on Finders.
Says ... I should be asking him myself but haven't recovered my password over there yet since I got my new laptop.

Quote


.... I would be using the best available for performance and longevity... that's a given. However the recharging is problematic. Every time you were to withdraw the batteries for recharging is going to induce stress on the wiring regardless of how careful you are and each time you do it you are exposing the internals to possible corruption from dust, etc.

I think my preference would be to either ask Bugs or a competent electronics technician to add a usb port in the casing to recharge the batteries in a bank in situ. We do this with mobile phones so I could not see it being a huge deal and then that also allows to carry a small power bank for charges on the go if required.

Kinda surprised it has not been set up like that already so will be interested in any feedback if anyone is talking to Bugs..
 Dustyminer on Finders

Seems it would cause further delays & complications at this stage of production

(I see Doug has posted the question another way.)

 Bugs why  have you decided to use a battery pack where the individual cells have to be charged rather than being able to charge the battery pack as a whole unit?

When you drop a magnet into this soil  the magnet picks up nearly ALL the ground.Its just like dropping a magnet into iron filings! I was amazed when BW showed me this.The QED  is able to GB over this soil  as reported by a tester in an earlier post. IBgold


"I have had it (QED) on ground that is around 70% iron content which was near impossible to ground balance with other detectors but was no problem with the QED"


Where I detect if I place and move my magnet on the ground the magnet has a roundish ball of ground stuck to it so has that something to do with the VRM of the ground.

I wonder if the settings IBGold used to GB on that ground were the factory pre-set settings that BW sets in the QED?

Also was he using one of the new Flat wound monos or some other mono coil at the time?

Hopefully IBGold can answer.

Field testing the QED - Reg Wilson

We all await the results of Reg Wilson’s field testing of a production QED. No product has it all, so it will contain good & not so good news I expect. Its good that his results will be posted there (on 4-umer) and not here as some distance from members here is important for his independence.

How can "a crumpet on a stick” called a QED be "a competent hobby detector”?
Or, is Reg being sincere when he says he thinks it shows promise - as a serious PI detector on par with most from ML or Whites? And why wouldn’t it be on par?

No need to tone down the excitement while the crow is cooking… its not getting softer so will not be easier to swallow.  

Reg I suggest is just one of a few unoffocial QED testers. Its denigrators won’t all like hearing their findings / reports.
No doubt Reg WILL report with honest unbiased comments on its potential as "a ML slayer" (not our words).
He reported without fear of favour on "The Dog" coil. I don’t know Reg but hope he covers his testing thoroughly, weather permitting.

Of course the QED will find gold, we all know that. But he should cover all its strengths & weaknesses: its weight, size, functions, its cost / value for money, user friendliness /ergonomics, ease of use in field, ease of ground balancing, sensitivity to small med and large metal targets incl gold, weight, adaptability to change / upgrades, ability in goldfield ground (depth & handling ground noise), battery life, EMI resistance & flexibility eg to coil changes, coil inclination. These suggestied items* are just things that matter to ALL. Reg knows what matters to detectorists.  I doubt he will take months ... weeks at most to make his conclusions. Its just hot and that limits what Reg can do on a summer day.

Yellowfin as a buyer (on Finders) has already highlighted a few of its features and attributes, most are facts (which Reg agrees with) ie not subjective. I think that it being "hand-built" is in this case an attribute, not a disadvantage, except it may cause delays in meeting orders.

 happy face

PS: He's having a fairly cool day of 26-28 deg (in shade) so he may be able to get out with the QED again.

* these are suggestions for Reg to address in his reporting, not a "shopping list" or instructions GB.

Gb digital readout
The QED GB gives a digital readout for the ground,As i understand it the higher the reading the more mineralized the ground. From memory a typical readout for Vic ground is around 130 .Beggary Hill from Wedderburn gives about 138 but some ground from Teetulpa  in SA gives a readout of 148!!! When you drop a magnet into this soil  the magnet picks up nearly ALL the ground.Its just like dropping a magnet into iron filings! I was amazed when BW showed me this.The QED  is able to GB over this soil  as reported by a tester in an earlier post.

 The QED does not auto tracking.Auto tracking has upsides and downsides.The downside is that with mono coils on the gp/gpx its possible to track  out some fainter target signals (won't happen with a DD coil) if the coil is repeatedly swept over the target.With the QED I don't think this can ever happen regardless of swing speed or how often the coil is swept across the target.

 I see that Lachlan on finders says  that the QED lacks a salt timing  for conductive ground and raises this as  a criticism.Well  just look at the problems that conductive ground causes the  SAD 7000 a detector costing over 5x the QED price and  whose 19" coil costs more than than the QED!
