The detector is housed in a small pager-like casing that can be clipped on a belt loop and runs on a two AAA batteries. It’s perfect for outdoor sporting events and activities.
The power button is used to select “On”, “On with tone” and “Off”. Turning the unit on requires simply a short pressing of the button.
