The New Garrett Axiom Gold Prospecting Metal Detector and What You Need to Know!

The New Garrett Axiom Gold Prospecting Metal Detector and What You Need to Know!

Garrett has just announced its newest addition to their fabulous line of metal detectors.  The company has doubled down on its metal detector offerings to those who are looking to get out into the fields and search for gold.

The company has, with the release of its two newest detectors, committed to the cold prospecting community.  Recently the company, which acquired Whites Metal Detectors, recently released the Garrett/White's Goldmaster 24K.  

The Goldmaster had long been one of White's best selling metal detector and it was known for being a proven gold getter.  While this detector is priced more in line with the other top selling, U.S. made metal detector, the Fisher Gold Bug II, or the world-renowned Minelab Gold Monster 1000, there are some people out there that need a little more out of their metal detectors.  Especially those who take the job of gold prospecting very seriously and are happy to pay up to get the technology to the next level to find the gold missed by others.

FAQ: What is the best pinpointer for metal detecting and why?

"While I think my opinion is important, I have to consider what the masses say. And the fact is, there is one pinpointer that sells 10-1 over the rest and for good reason."

FAQ:  What type of USB port should I use to charge my metal detector?

FAQ: What type of USB port should I use to charge my metal detector?

Several metal detector brands now offer internal, rechargeable batteries.  There are pros and cons to this.  Pro - you are not spending a ton of money on batteries each year.  Con - if this battery goes kaput, you have to send it into the manufacturer to get it replaced...and it will eventually go bad.

One of the most frequent calls we get goes something like this: "There was not charging port with my metal detector."  This is especially true with the higher volume selling metal detectors like the Minelab Equinox series or Nokta Makro Series metal detectors.  The reason they did not get one is because most metal detector manufacturers sell in multiple different countries.  In the past, with Minelab for example, the would send the part of the charger that plugs into the wall (we will call it the charging block) with several different adapters for each type of wall outlet for each country they sold in.  Obviously this was an added expense.  So, many of the metal detector manufacturers went to simply providing the metal detector charger with the specific detector's charging cable on one end and a simple USB (universal serial bus) plug in on the other end.  Since USB ports are, as is stated in their name, "universal" they are can be found all across the globe.  Their output, and safety standards are what varies....
