Use tecno5 to make it £5.69 and delivery makes it £9.64

Thanks for the pointer ;-)

Oops You've added that info already! Thanks again ;-)

Welcome to HotUKDeals by the way!

This looks identical to the "Science Museum" coin sorter that Comet et al were selling off for £4.99 after Christmas (where I picked up one).

Good sorter, does the job well and the kids love using it - if you regularly get stacks of loose change this will save you a fortune in the long term on the supermarket coin sorters.

Thanks

Can't see why this matters since it is only for counting the coins not storing them.

You feed in coins a batch at a time, and the coins are stored in a stack at the front. A stack of 1ps I believe equates to 50p's worth, 2ps a £1. The other denominations are similar height, but rounded to the nearest sensible amount (i.e. £5 of 20ps from memory).

Not sure if that answers your question, but when a stack is full, press the button at the front, and the whole lot tilts forward so you can easily empty a "tube" ready to carry on counting.

It's not the fastest sorter in the world, probably averages a coin or two a second.

The first time you sort 100 quid in change (and some people have lot in those change bottles) this will pay for itself, as opposed to the supermarket machines, (that always seem to be out of order anyway)

Don't throw in more than 25 coins at a time and be prepared to unblock it a few times, especially if it encounters a lot of coins of the same value as they tend to then sit and wait to be picked up.

I've used mine a few times and it is a great time saver and good value for what it is. if you're expecting a professional machine or sort a lot of change on a regular basis then this isn't really for you.

I had two from Tecno just after Xmas when they must have been overstocked and did them for £4.94 + shipping - 5%

In fact I had three as one had to go back as on/off switch didn't work at all.

It also runs on external DC 4.5V power so you don't have to keep feeding them withbatteries.

Not really sure just HOW useful it is as the coin stacks do NOT all tally with numbers you'll need to feed into coin bags for the bank, but it does sort and stack coins and I wanted one as a kid 40yrs ago and have one now :-D And I use my electronic scales to check the coin bags anyway (as do the Post Office/bank).

theres a free one of these in barcleys bank!! lol

I got one of these coin sorters the other day and i have grievances with it..

First of all, you don't get any adapter or batteries so it's dead out of the box, and you can't manually drop coins into the tubes either as the tubes are jammed shut unless there's power, which means if one day the batteries fail/power fails, then you have no access to your money, not good at all

They need 3 large C batteries which is an expensive ongoing cost, and they also state in the manual not to use rechargeables, anyone know where you can get an adapter for it? because i don't fancy forking out for batteries and it's just been in it's box unused since i got it

I've got one of these and I was annoyed too when I found out that I'd have to go and buy the [very expensive] C size batteries, but luckily I discovered that you can use normal AA just as easily- all you need to do is slot them in on the contacts and make sure they don't fall out (AA are exactly the same length as C, so it doesn't make any difference really; you can even buy battery adaptors to make them fit perfectly... e.g. ]7dayshop).

About the rechargeable recommendation - that's all it is; I'm using rechargables on mine and it works perfectly.

Thanks for the info, i'll give that a try now as i have some AA batteries..

Ordered yesterday afternoon, arrived this morning! Excellent service. Seems to put the odd 20p in with the £1 coins though!

my mother has one of these, i think they suck in a way becaus ethey dont count the money for you, now that would be a deal, voted hot due to price anyway

I got mine delivered today as well and seems fine.
Doesn't seem like they have anymore in stock now.

To convert 'AA' batteries to 'C' batteries (ie. to use rechargeable AA's in the coin sorter), try the battery adapters from Maplins. I use them in all the kids toys. Link below...

Doesn't work with AA batteries and doesn't work with various adaptors i tried, 5volt, 9volt, 12 volt etc i think it came broken, anyway, managed to yank open the front so i can drop coins in the tubes manually, that'll do :-(
