Kevin Hoagland recently did a full and comprehensive field test of XP's Batea gold pan. Here's his final thoughts and conclusion, you can read the full article over at the XP detector website. The XP Batea is not a novelty pan, it is a serious tool for the gear box and one that I think you will find yourself using more and more often than you think you will right now.
It is a bit bulkier than what you are used to, but the design of the flattop grip area makes all the difference in the world. Think about it this way, take your favorite gold pan and put a shelf around it to make it even easier to hold onto and use. Now to the part about it being innovative. The Defragmenter is, as I said earlier, the key and the smartest thing I have seen done to a gold pan. Riffles are one thing, but this unit tears down challenging soils like I have never seen without the chance of blowing your gold past a riffle.

After over 50 years in the Industry, whites have decided to retire and sell all technology, branding and machines to Garrett. We are sad to see the whites family retire, but glad their name and products can live on under the garrett banner.
Garrett CEO Steve Novakovich commented, “The White family and the Garrett family have had a high level of respect for one another as competitors in the sport market for decades. Now we at Garrett are proud to combine our respective legacies as Garrett continues on as the premier American metal detector company.”
We hope Garrett can continue to bring the whites tradition to metal detecting and the name live on. What are your thoughts on the acquisition? Let us know in the comments below!

I JUST RECEIVED MY APEX AND IT WILL NOT TURN ON. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
The Apex uses a lithium rechargeable battery. These batteries are shipped from the factory with a minimal amount of charge. Sometimes this charge is used up during production testing. We recommend charging the Apex for 4 to 5 hours prior to use to ensure a full charge. The battery icon on the LCD will blink to indicate that charging is in progress.
APEX IS SAID TO FULLY CHARGE IN 4 TO 5 HOURS. MINE HAS BEEN PLUGGED IN FOR 6 HOURS AND IT DOES NOT SEEM TO BE CHARGING VERY FAST. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
The rapid charging system in Apex requires 500 ma. (1/2 ampere) to achieve the fastest charge. Most wall chargers can
