Lightning Detector, 0 to 25 mi. is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still Works After Three years. Still works after three years. Use it outside and inside. Only problem is the letters (digital) are getting hard to read. The lens is clean, it's just the letter that appear on the screen are failing to make a full word. Other than that, works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love mine! I fish all over the Southeast. I take it on the boat and it's proven accurate to me. Bought one for each of my sons and they love them. Priceless for hikers, campers, golfers, and of course anglers! Note to other reviewers: This isn't a weather station. Lightening does occur without a storm and without a cloud in the sky. Google it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will not detect lightning I received this as a Christmas present . I just started using it for Monsoon season as we get a lot of lighting around here. Installed bran new duracell batteries in it and turned it on. first it says to relocate and as I live in a wide open area, I moved about 400 ft from my house, same thing. switched it to indoor mode then a lighting bolt hit about .01 of a mile from me and it didn't do a thing. good thin I didn't depend on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mine works great! Lots of negative reviews here, but my experience has been stellar! Was at my dad's recently when his lightning detector (this model) started going off with clear skies. Even though I had bought it for him, I thought it might be a dud. It said the strikes were 20 miles away. Gradually it said the strikes were getting closer and by the time it said they were within a couple of miles, sure enough, a storm was on top of us. Pretty impressive for it to notify us the storm was getting closer and closer, and lots of fun to see it signal as lightning was visible outside. I became such a believer I bought one for myself that I keep in my house. I take it with me when I go kayaking and clip it on my pfd. Today it detected lightning in time for me to paddle the mile or so back to the ramp to get off the water before the storm arrived. I even knocked it off my pfd into the lake today and it still works!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work inside or out I got this because I wanted to take it with me when I was away from home. I have the sensor for at home and it works great. This thing could have lighting go off right next to it and it wouldn't do an alert. I am very disappointed. I wish I would have just bought another regular sensor instead of this piece of junk.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lightning detector does not work very well Same as the other person commenting negatively on the device, it does not detect lighting reliably and at any distance greater than 1 mile. I tried all of the trouble shooting steps (new batteries, location well away from all sources of interference), to no avail. It detects lighting better in "indoor mode" suggesting that there is a fault in the design; over-filtering. It does not detect lightning strikes that are visible bolts to the ground. The detector constantly says "relocate ...", suggesting that it is picking up interference that does not exist in an open field. I will try to get a refund. The help line for technical support was a 99 minute wait when I tried. Not good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Would not buy agsin Worked for a few days. I keep getting a message to relocate the detector, even when I am in a wide open area. I have an app on my iPhone that provides the same info as this device and it is much more reliable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from IT ONLY COUNTS UP TO 199 STRIKES. IT ONLY COUNTS UP TO 199 STRIKES. HOW HARD WOULD IT HAVE BEEN TO MAKE IT COUNT UP TO 999 STRIKES. ? JUST HAD A BIG STORM WITH MULITPLE LIGHTNING STRIKES ABOUT EVERY 5 SECONDS. IT STOPPED AT 199 STRIKES. OR IN ABOUT 20 MINUTES. IT STILL BEEPS AFTER 199, BUT UNLESS YOU WANT TO SIT THERE AND COUNT EACH BEEP AFTER 199, YOU WON'T HAVE A CLUE AS TOO HOW MANY ACTUAL STRIKES THERE WERE. SO IF YOU WANT SOMETHING THAT WILL ACCURATLY COUNT ALL LIGHTNING STIKES, THIS IS NOT THE PRODUCT.
