The QED Metal Detector was first released in late 2016. It was known as the QED PL1 and had only three control buttons on the forward mounted control box. Mid 2018 saw the release of the improved current version, the QED PL2. The QED is a ground balancing pulse induction (GBPI) metal detector aimed primarily at the gold prospecting market. The QED is currently only available for sale in Australia.
"The QED design philosophy was to “to create a performance competitive detector at a realistic price for fellow prospectors”. The result is a single channel Pulse Induction metal detector that’s very well priced in relation to its competitors and has the performance to match the current tier 1 metal detectors of all other brands; you can swing it all day without a harness and bungy and the supplied LiPo batteries last all day."
