What do we think? A quick review …….
If we had to choose the best alarm, it would have to be the Minder Personal Alarm.
The alarm is solidly constructed, very loud and is designed purely to attract attention. Everything else is second.
As alarms go, this is certainly no small pocket sized device. It will fit in larger pockets or a small bag but anything smaller and you may have a bit of trouble.
Along with the slight size issue, it also weighs in heavier than most. This isn’t a problem for most users, but if you would like a lightweight, discrete device, you may wish to look elsewhere.
If the size is an issue for users without larger pockets, the Minder Alarm does feature a sturdy clip that can be used to attach it to your clothing or belt.
However, we feel that these slight imperfections can all but be forgotten once you experience it’s performance. It really is ear splitting! Part of the heavier weight can be put down to the hefty 9 volt battery that this alarm uses. This powers the 143 decibel siren.
An often overlooked feature, is the way the alarm is activated.
As described earlier, you pull a lanyard attached to a pin to set the siren off. This is the same as many others you may think. Well, yes it is, but the difference with this alarm is that the entire pin will actually detach from the main alarm body.
This will allow you to throw the pin some distance away, preventing anyone hostile to you silencing the alarm by simply pushing the pin back down.
Constructed from tough ABS plastic, the alarm should be able to withstand the odd drop or knock without too many problems. After a few years experience with these, I have yet to break one!
This is one of the best selling personal alarms in the UK and the reason is clear.
As a protective device to either ward off attackers or summon help for a fallen hiker, this one is hard to beat.
As our most recommended alarm, it is not perfect, but comes close.
The size of the alarm and square shape makes this one a bit of a ‘masculine’ device. Let’s be honest, it is not the prettiest alarm out there but then it isn’t designed to be.
As a professional use personal alarm, the Minder is widely purchased by businesses and private users alike. It is a top quality personal alarm and it sets the bar high.
