The best geiger counter / radiation detector for the common use.
The Radex RD1212-BT Geiger Counter/Dosimeter is one of the best reasonably priced units I have seen. I’ve had mine for several months and it is easy to use and works beautifully. You can select to measure MicroSiverts or MicroRem, I prefer MicroRem and if the measurement goes beyond 1000 it displays it in MilliRem. You can also switch the display to measure Counts Per Minute. One if the best features is the Vibrate mode which most other units don’t have. When walking around with this unit I set it to Vibrate with the beeping sound off. The biggest drawback with this Radex is it has no way to clip it to your belt. You can carry it in your shirt pocket or do as I did and buy a Belt Case measuring ( 110mm x 75mm x 20mm ) on eBay from China, it fits perfectly. I have carried the Radex in public and numerous times while sitting in a Restaurant it vibrates and goes crazy. Someone has just walked in the door, 30 feet away who has had a recent injection of technetium 99 a commonly used Radioactive Tracer used in tens of millions of medical diagnostic procedures annually. Finding Radioactivity in everyday life is just a fun thing to do, a Hobby much better than Collecting Stamps.
Love this product! Gives me a piece of mind since I’ve started to feel worried about environment around me after realizing I’m pregnant.
Compact enough to fit into my lady-bag 🙂
Best portable, Geiger Counter available.
Easy to read screen with Backlight
Audio and / or Vibrate Alarm,
( Vibrate Mode is absolutely essential for everyday Indiscreet carry ).
CPM ( Counts per Minute )
When measuring in MicroSiverts or MicroRems if the reading is over 1,000 the display automatically switches to MilliSiverts or MilliRems. If measuring in CPM the display switches to times 1000.
There is an Alarm Threshold that is adjustable.
The unit is equipped with Bluetooth which allows connection to your iPhone or Android device and sharing readings over the Internet.
The RD1212-BT displays the Time, Date, Temperature ( F/C ) and Air Pressure in mmHg ( Millimeters of Mercury ) and has a built in Flashlight.
This is the smallest and easiest to carry Geiger Counter I have seen. It fits into a Shirt Pocket or perfectly into my preference, a 110mm x 75mm x 20mm Belt Pouch from China. I carry this Geiger Counter everywhere, you would be surprised at some of the Radioactive things I have found, ( No Dirty Bombs yet ), but I’m doing my part!
I have had numerous interactions with “Dmitry” at this company and he is the best, very responsive!
