So how does this guy work? If you already picked up on the fact that it's not a full-sized metal detector, good eye — it's only 9" long. It's meant to be used alongside a full-size detector to zero in on your booty's location. A metal detector will tell you it's close, but it can be hard to figure out exactly where. Ever noticed that treasure hunters have buff arms? It's from digging a lot of unnecessary holes. But when you've gotten "warm" in your metal search, then turn this on for a closer look, and its LED light, as well as a beeping sound and vibration will lead you to your prize.

There are two versions. One is partially waterproof, while the other is fully waterproof. In many cases, lost items might be in the water and difficult to find or see, so the ability to lock down their exact location is very beneficial. And if you don't feel like much of a treasure hunter, well — it can help you find a dropped ring or a lost key in a big pile of leaves, too.

"Bought this along with my new metal detector. This little tool came in handy so many times, just on my first hunt on our family home place. Several times that I dug up after metal was detected, then I would not find anything," said one aspiring treasure hunter. "Waving this little magic wand over my clump of dug-up dirt would help me find the metal object every time! Though I have not found anything valueable, this is great for pinpointing after initial metal detection. Would also work great if you lose a nail or small metal in the yard & know about where you dropped it. This is a must-have if you are metal detecting!"

Of course, there are always alternative uses for technology, like what this homeowner does: "I like it for the purpose I have used it for so far, finding electrical wiring and nails in wall paneling." That's right, DIYers: It's a great stud finder too!

Sensitive to gold, iron, silver or steel, this'll have you testing your mettle as a treasure hunter.
