SkyScan Hand held Portable Lightning Storm Detector

Are you scared of lightning of the golf course or just afraid to go outdoors in a storm? Don't leave home without this hand held device. SkyScan's technology detects the actual frequency of lightning and alerts you to how far away it is, and whether it is moving towards you or away from you.

With a range of 40 miles, you will have more than enough time to seek shelter - and perhaps avoid being fried as you put in that last golf ball.

This unit is used by the Armed Forces, local governments, utility companies, Little League teams, soccer teams, swim teams, golf courses, boaters, campers, and fishermen.

Housed in weatherproof ABS plastic, the unit features 4 LED warning lights for ranges of 0-3, 3-8, 8-20 and 20-40 miles, and an audible tone. Also has a low battery light/tone and a belt clip for portability.

Runs on 2 9-Volt batteries for 40-70 hours (not included).
