Stay Safe Outdoors This Summer with a Portable Handheld Lightning Detector

‘It could never happen to me.’ Those six words represent the assumption that almost everyone makes about lightning strikes. We hear horror stories of people getting hit by lightning, but we don’t think the same thing could ever befall us or our friends and family. Hopefully, this assumption will hold true for most of us. To give yourself the best chance of never being struck by lightning, though, it’s a good idea to invest in a portable handheld lightning detector.

A lightning detector doesn’t have to be a huge piece of equipment. On the contrary, you can get a portable, handheld device that is hardly larger than your smartphone. This device can then give you the ability to track lightning strikes near your location or monitor the risk of lightning striking where you are right now.

If you are looking for a portable handheld lightning detector that is reliable and proven, then the LD3000 StrikeAlert Commercial Lightning Detector is a good bet. This device has 360-degree lightning monitoring, which means it tracks lightning in all directions. Most detectors only have 180-degree fields. In addition to tracking lightning strikes that have occurred recently, the device also monitors audible and vibration warnings that indicate a lightning strike within your general vicinity. Together, these features can give you time to take shelter before the lightning is upon you.
