Very clever bit of kit, simple really. It counts any size coin (lets hope no new coins are introduced!) and then shows the amount on a monchrome black ink display (like a calculator).
Its been very useful for storing my loose change and is a pleasant surprise to see the figure saved after a couple of months for example! Great for Adults and kids alike... Well worth the money!!
I think this item is a great idea, but when I put the batteries in, it didn't seem to work, so I unscrewed everything and noticed that the wires underneath everything had snapped, so now just putting money into an empty jar, basically defeating the object of an 'Electric Money Counting Jar.'
In principal, this is a brilliant idea, but the only problem I seem to have all the time, is I put in a large amount of money in it to start off, and it gets so far, about 15-20 quids worth - and then the counter malfunctions and you have to reset and start all over again. Be warned.
Does what it says on the tin..Jar I mean! Counts the money perfectly! Could have come with batteries!!!!!
Size is pretty good and has space for enough coins! It would be nice to have an OFF button to save battery but I guess you cannot have it all! The total will vanish once the battery dies so it is important to keep a count on the monies!
