So what makes the Original SOEKS 01M so great?
Fast Detection: At the risk of sounding like a broken record, this is the #1 reason peopel choose SOEKS. You’ll appreciate the under-10-second on-the-spot detection time, which remains the fastest on the market. Because who really wants to be kept waiting when finding out if they’re about to eat something dangerously radioactive?
Ease of use: We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention how easy it is to use the Orignal 01M. The SOEKS 01M displays radiation with easy red, yellow, and green color coding so that you do not have to memorize any rules of radiation.
- Green means “Go” (“Normal Background”)
- Yellow – “Proceed with Caution” (sorry, no cute saying here, just “High Background”)
- Red means “Run!” (“Dangerous Background”)
Long-lasting battery life and convenient recharging: The 01M holds it’s charge for up to 10 hours, so it’s with you all day. And to make battery replacement easy and cost-effective, it takes standard AA batteries.
