Let’s face it, not everyone needs a Geiger counter – some of us just want one! This one seems to do an excellent job and offers great value too.

Remember how concerned we all were in 2011 when the Fukashima disaster struck? You could not buy a Geiger counter for love nor money. Suppliers sold out within hours!

So don’t wait for the next nuclear disaster to buy one.

This unit is made in Russia. It measures beta and gamma radiation, which is what you need for nuclear radiation.

Apparently it is quite popular in Japan. The Japanese would be discerning customers, don’t you think?

The description doesn’t mention alpha particles (e.g. from radon gas) or x-rays, so this meter won’t measure these kinds of radiation.

Some Amazon reviews complained about the manual, which is apparently a poor translation into English.

But overall, at this price, you could do a lot worse.

It’s good to be prepared, don’t you think?
