  1. Just thought I'd post this............. I now run a 14.8v pack (4 x 18650 cells in series) which gives me a 7 hour run time. My previous version used loose cells in a holder but I wasn't happy with that. I made up a battery lead that connects directly to the battery compartment contacts with small brass "screw terminal" connectors soldered with 22AWG wire. A bit fiddly to hook up (long and narrow screw driver needed to tighten the two terminal screws) but very secure and + - leads well apart to avoid a short. I may put in place a rubber divider that further separates the +- battery contacts but the screw connectors are quite secure. The battery pack fits in snugly and does not move around at all. I deliberately made the wire lead long enough so the battery can be unplugged with the excess lead bundled inside the battery compartment. Tony
  2. ...is that you can chest or hip mount the control box using the included pouch. The TDI BeachHunter is already the lightest weight waterproof ground balancing pulse induction (GBPI) detector on the market at 5.2 lbs. It is also the only GBPI model that comes ready to hip or chest mount. If you chest or hip mount the control box all you are swinging is the rod and coil at about 2 lbs. Nice! Note that the coil on the TDI BeachHunter is hardwired to the control box. Use care not to bend and stress the connection point to the control box as it could lead to premature failure of the coil cable.

  10. Tom, I have a brand new (3 spoke centre mount) 10" coil hand built by Eric Foster that I would like to have installed onto my TDI Beach Hunter. Is this something I could have White's do for me to maintain warranty? If so, could you PM me on cost and anything else I should consider. I find the 12" Dual Field just a bit too big for water hunting. Thanks for any help, Tony
  11. Published on Jan 18, 2019 by White's Electronics, Inc. Can your P.I. detector discriminate iron? If you have a TDI the answer is yes it can!
  12. Daniel Teague Published on Dec 5, 2018 Some of you guys were curious as to the tone differences between a Minelab GPX and Whites TDI. This is the GPX 4800 and TDI Beachhunter and a little bit of why I like the GPX better when it comes to relic and beach hunting.
  13. So my brother who has been detecting for 20 years has only recovered 1 gold ring and that ended up in a museum in England. I promised him if he used the new White's TDI "DEEP" Beach Hunter the whole time on our hunt that he'd find more than 1 gold ring. Not only did he do that, but he also recovered the best ring of the trip, this monster Emerald, diamond and yellow gold beauty. Hats off to you Travis for not giving up on those deep signals. Folks, the TDI Beach Hunter is a Pulse Induction detector and it goes much deeper than standard machines. Plus it runs smoother than most in salt water and is simple to use...just turn it on, set the knobs and go. One of the cool features of the TDI beach Hunter is the Tone Identification system that allows you to decide if you want to dig the High Tone Only, which gives you a greater chance of gold and platinum rings, or the Low Tones which are usually most coins. This feature alone saves time as you will end up digging DEEP. One other thing to have, a good Deep Beach Scoop.
  14. Silver or pure gold is low ton in TDI beach huner, but other low ton railways. Beach Hunter is wrong with TDI Pro? TDI Pro is not low ton.How do you set up the others?
  15. Interesting to recover so many religious medals on 1 trip but "Faith" was on our side. The best of the 5 is the yellow gold with diamonds in the middle, but I have to give credit to my brother as he saved that one. The sterling pieces are very nice as is the other ones of lesser metal, but with the same powerful meaning. The TDI Beach Hunter did its job and I have faith this machine will do well for many. Steve, If you feel this post needs to be in the Jewelry Forum, I understand. Some folks do not feel religion wear is jewelry..so I walk softly.

    TDI Sl

    I may have an opportunity to buy a Whites TDI SL with two rechargeable NINH batteries, one AA battery pack, jimmy sierra elliptical dual field mono coil, miner john elliptical waterproof coil, 2 large TDI round open coils, and a Whites padded carry bag/case. Would it be worth buying since I have an Equinox 800 and a Teknetics G2? He's asking $750.

    TDI Beachhunter Unboxing Video

    Normally I am not one to watch people taking something out of a box, but these folks do a good job of filming every little part and piece of the Beachhunter TDI....
  19. Click image for larger version.... White's TDI Beachhunter Color Flyer New Whites TDI Beach Hunter
  20. Well I sat down and re-visited the 4 x 18650 batteries for the TDI Beach Hunter and managed a successful battery boost.....It's a snug fit but went in better than expected. Now someone probably has another version but here is my Ghetto version ! I needed to remove most of the White's battery holder to reduce the overall height otherwise the 18650 holder would sit on the floor of the White's holder. All that's really needed is the end part to make the electrical contact. The two outer batteries are quite secure inside the detector as they snug up against the battery compartment housing. 1. Cut down AA White's battery holder 2. Trimmed down 18650 battery holder 3. Removal of two small plastic tabs from the "roof" of the detector's battery compartment (easy and very neat) 4. Bit of hot glue to bring the two holders together but doesn't need to be super strong. 5. Soldering of 18650 leads to contacts on the White's battery holder And for the record.........the depth increase on my gold ring is a solid 1.5" to 2" over the standard 12v pack. Range has jumped from 14" to 16" with GB off and everything else at max.
  21. I thought I'd copy this from my other thread which was buried down on the second page.......is this okay Steve as I don't want to duplicate if unnecessary? "Just got back from the beach....in one word.........awesome. Some observations; It is the deepest detector I have ever used on the beach (in the past 25 years) by running the higher voltage pack. It is the first time I have ever detected (with any detector, including the Minelab PI's) my gold wedding ring at a measured/buried 18" deep. The US nickel can be heard at 16" in buried wet sand...but with GB OFF. With GB ON it drops to 12"-13" ! My machine is much deeper with GB OFF across all targets.....the rock solid threshold with GB OFF is unbelievable with no loss of sensitivity. Even with the coil swept through shallow salt water at max gain and 10us......it is so smooth. I don't know how White's have done it....maybe a new batch of the latest flux capacitors...... I tried with GB on but in clean white sand, there was no perfect GB....it was close but just a slight positive signal as the coil was lowered to the ground...but the depth loss was significant with GB on and slight falsing with higher GAIN. None of this is a problem with GB OFF." Tony PS.......on the real deepies (edge of detectability), there is often a one, two and three way signal but not a four way signal if swept from left,right and up and down.
  22. My TDIBH got here door to door from the USA in 6 days which is great....thanks again to Gerry at Gerry's Detector's ! I did some basic tests on my back lawn (which is devoid of any metallic targets to at least a metre). I did notice that no GB was needed which is what I would expect but interestingly if the GB was left at "4", the detector would barely detect my gold ring. As soon as the GB was turned higher or lower, then the ring was detected at great distance. I know I can run with no GB (straight PI) but the depth was slightly improved with GB engaged. I am wondering that when I hit the beaches, which down here are generally mineral/black sand free, where should I leave the GB if it's not required? I will most likely bury a target and dial in the GB (assuming it's not actually needed for a proper GB) which gives the best response but I am very wary of a setting that might not see the target ! I am new to the TDI SL platform so any tips is much appreciated. Thanks, Tony

    TDI SL Battery Pack Up Grade

    White's for the past couple years, I was told, has been working on an up graded battery pack for the TDI SL which will allow it to operate at to 14 volts or more. There is plenty of "home made" stuff out there that seems to work very well but I keep waiting for a factory product that should have been out by now. I'm just a breath away from buying a reputable model from a guy making /selling them on eBay. Has anyone heard anything concerning this matter from White's? They sure can make it tough to be a loyal customer.
