I've had the same issue - after fishing in a torrential downpour, packed up & headed home. Checked the alarms as I put them away at the end of the session & even when switched off, one of the LEDs stayed on. Only managed to sort it having dried it in the airing cupboard for a couple of days......

Iíve had a LED stay on until I removed battery and dried out. Also had a alarm head LED light up when switching on a battery charger. Not a deal breaker but not faultless.

Had mine 9 months, zero issues and no problems using in wet conditions. Then again, I've owned every single version of the Delkim and even the first conversions were faultless. Deal? You won't find any. Delkim don't allow their authorised dealers to offer anything.

The LEDs on the receiver are fixed however you can program each LED colour with up to 4 alarms that is to say the receiver can have a maximum of 24 alarms programs into it.

Thatís up to you mate, to me it was a £100 saving as the price was just over £470 when converted, plus the case which is £25. Delkim registered the warranty no problem, and I donít have a local shop that stocks them anyway so it didnít make sense for me to order from the UK and pay £100 more. 👍🏻

I decided against fishernator. The hard box is great if you would use it but my alarms are left permanently on the buzz bars so I wouldnít..
Its a £60 saving to buy from abroad on UK prices now. - Iíd preferred to buy from local shop so should there be an Early issue With one i can take it back and swop if needed. I
had to do that when i bought the TXI,s a few years ago, one wouldnít pick up receiver on 2nd trip and it was just swopped for a new one.
If you would use free case then fishernator maybe worth it but any issue and you have to send It off to either delkim or back to Austria.

The left hand button started playing up on one of mine and kept sticking earlier this wk. I got in touch with them and sent it back on monday and they sent a brand new replacement which arrived today and also put in a delkim inulated mug. You cant ask anymore than that. Fantastic customer service.

Mine were just over £470 once converted to pounds, plus you get a Delkim hard carry case which is £25 on its own. So still a £100 saving Worth keeping an eye on the exchange rate at the time though.

BTW they are not £400 at fishernator. If you do a dummy checkout after they add tax on and its £486 for set of 3+1 so saving is down to £69 on standard UK price.

Yep shown as £400 at fishernator for set of 3 and receiver delivered. They have to be making a decent profit on that so UK selling at £550 a set is a huge mark up on top.

it's crazy that Delkim are exporting alarms which are then being sold to UK customers undercutting UK retailers for import back into the UK. Don't for one second blame anyone buying them though

Anyone used fishernator?

Edit read below see a couple have used them. Problem is if thereís an issue you cant just take it back to the shop and swop it which i did a few years ago when i bought txi,s. One was faulty , took it back straight swop. I suppose you can send off to Delkim but them no alarm for a week.

Just done a 48hr session with the txi-d. It was pouring rain for most of it, and 40mph wind last night which made the lake look like the North Sea!. The alarms were spot on, I only had 1 bleep through the storm last night/this morning.The night mode with the slimlites looks sweet too. Shame I didnít catch but you canít have it all

Iím well happy with them and will sell my R3ís now.

30 mins is bugger all. Once you have them how you want them thats it switch them on them on then switch them off when you go home. Its hardly difficult. You dont have to anything if you dont want to, just leave them as factory settings and pair them to the receiver. Piece of @@@@

To open the boxes, fit the batteries, read the instructions, pair them all up to the receiver and change the settings to how I want to start, yes.

Are you being dramatic, as though itís going to take half an hour every time I turn them on? Because all Iíll do on Thursday is turn them all on and Iím ready to fish. Everyday stuff is a button press or turn of a dial.

You can set DND to be on continuously instead of just 15 mins by holding down PB2 and PB3 until you hear a beep. And yes, theyíll only register a proper run when itís set.

I got a set this morning and I donít know what the fuss is about them being complicated. Yes, they have far more features than most alarms but it took less than 30 mins to set everything up from scratch, now Iím confident I can adjust most things on the bank without checking the instructions again.

Tempted by these. In recent years had Fox NTX-r and the new RX+ but swapped to Nevs for the simplicty and after teething problems with the RX+ on an early batch. The Fox were excellent alarms otherwise and the Nevs work just fine.

Can any one using the new Delks and in particular if you have experience with Nevs tell me if there are any features that are really useful over the Nevs?

Only get false beeps on the Nevs in heavy gusts. Hate false beeps with a passion but haven't heard of anyone compaining about this on the new Delks.

If you use the do not disturb function the receiver with not bleep unless you get a bite ie bleeps on the alarms do transmit unless you significant line movement? This resets after 15 minutes though ideal in hail storm

I like the mute function on the alarms, but the receiver still bleeps which is frustrating. Any way to mute the receiver when the alarms are muted?

Ive had both rx and now got the new delks, early days with the delkims so ts not a long winded review BUT I fished last weekend in the storms with my new delkims and didn't suffer any problems in the high winds and rain, the do not disturb feature is great to stop intermittent beeps in such conditions and the functionality is great on them add to the fact that they look so much better than the old ones and I think you have a winner.

To give some background I got rid of my old delkims and had NXT-r and then upgraded to the RX+ since release and cant say there was anything wrong with them and in my time I didn't have any issues but god they are ugly and feel plastic to the touch and given that Im a tart I don't think you can beat the sound of a Delkim.

In closing you won't go wrong with the RX I just like the newer slimmer Delkim that is packed with more features not that Ive adjusted them as yet from the standard settings

Bought a set when they came out last year for my barbel fishing and so far they have been faultless. I was a true delkim hater and used to slate them after having issues with the previous txiís in wet conditions but took the punt as the new fox alarms are huge hideous looking things and so far so good. They look much better in the flesh as i was a bit unsure of the looks when i first seen the photos of them.

It does, but a bit of adjustment soon cures false bleeps. It's not just about twiddling the dials, but how the rods are set up too. I can honestly say in well over 20 years of using delks I've never not been able to cure weather related bleeps

I might be misunderstanding this cos my experience is all based on Delkim anglers I've fished near but I would have thought the alarms picks up vibration on the line and rain causes vibration. What's the difference between a fish and rain vibrating the line?

do these alarms still beep in heavy rain due to vibration caused by rain drops? Seen that happen on the old ones and put me right off. these are beginning to look quite appealing.

All delkim indicators fit the new TXiD. if you use the arms for the hangers you can ditch the part that goes under alarm and use the new c clip to connect to front of the alarm.

Snag ears battery covers and quick release shoe accessory are different between the TXi and TXi D

The quick release feet that screw in the bank stick are the same.

Iíve not had any problems with mine at all, had mine since day 1 and they havenít kissed a beat. Still on the first set of batteries aswell and I go for 2 48hr sessions a month. I was worried about the battery with all the little bits on the alarms and reciever but not gone yet which is good in my eyes

Seen very few complaints over social media about the new Dells..... personally I have heard of/experienced 3 separate issues...one water ingress, (turned out to be a cracked case) one of a receiver packing up when left in the sun and the other ghost runs.....on the whole they seem a huge improvement on the previous model.

Battery life on the Receiver could be a bit better!

i Donít think there are that many failures. Just people seeing the odd one and then going on about it due to past reputation. Iíve had different delkims since 1996 (3 different models) never had an issue and they were out in some torrents in France.

I know bit its overkill and I reckon selling the two sets to have one set will make life easier for me in the long run as im constantly chopping and changing between the two I have.

Just need to find somewhere to get a god deal on the new Delks anyone think there will be deals to be had at the show?

Don't do it, even if the delks are great so are what you already have and at least currently if you do have an issue with one set you have the other as backup.

Well pleased with mine, indication is spot on, miles better than my old foxes, been using them for perch fishing too with light lines and bobbins and there is no loss of indication.

Hello...I would use what you have and spend the money on gearing up! You already know, those fish dont care, they take the food, and go.If Delkims are a must, I would go for the entry level ones, the differences arent that major compared to the TXI, built in transmitter. I am a firm believer that delkims are all hype, most people set in on the run or drop back.

Iím still interested in grabbing a set in a few years time. I have 3 smart alarm devices that work with my current set of TXis and RXi and so it would be hard to justify. Especially as they wonít have an updated version until early next year.

Certainly not worth the upgrade in my opinion, I'll stick with my TXi,s though some nice features and perhaps worth considering if I was in the market for new alarms...

It really doesnt bother me like already mentioned it stops people constantly fiddling with there alarms to check it's on.

I agree there isn't really any real reason why they did it and yes you can just tell by pressing a button but Tbh is it that big of a deal? To me it's a set of alarms I like so who really cares if it flashes every now and then, every hour, every minute or every second.

People will always pick fault with stuff no matter how good it is or bad, there will always be delkim haters just makes me laugh when people actually go out of there way to do it

agreed, if there is no visible way to see it is still on wouldnt you be messing with you alarms to check regularly or it actually turns off for whatever reason and you miss a bite, people will be moaning there wasnt such a feature to let them know it's still on no doubt.

No difference to the Nash R3's but they don't blink at you to confirm they are on...and what about if you switch the receiver off and then on again and you don't have a beep, how will it tell you it is still on then?

Won't be buying them then, cannot see any usefulness in such a feature. Something else to go wrong as I'm sure something that controls this on the chipset will go fubar.
The more I hear, the more likely I'll buy a set of fox's as backup for when my txi's suffer interference. Delks have the better sensing imo but the ilist of ssues seems to get lon9and longer with every incarnation

It's so you no they it is still on because there is no switch or any other way to visibly tell if it's still switch on, it's not constantly it's like once every 5 mins not really that big of a thing and you get used to it

The last activated LED on the receiver flashes every 2 minutes. It is only a quick on and off flash that is only noticeable in the dark.

Sounds like they need to iron out a lot with the D's. Imo all that was needed was better components and a watertight case, explain to me this light? Is it like the 20 second latching led on the txi?

It really isnt that noticeable that i would even worry about it. I wondered what it was when i first noticed it, but i only noticed it in the first place, as i was leaning my phone up against it while watching the football. Didnt wake me once in the night in a whole week, and didnt notice it after dark, its not really bright enough to project light anywhere it will be seen

Didn't the previous version alarm heads do this during hours of darkness? like a odd blinking of the LEDs that was so rapid it just looked like they were on? Is it not the same thing with the receiver on this model?

I'm still on mk1s which still work and havent really let me down apart from physical damage caused by snag fishing. Rx2004 has been written off though sadly and a replacement is just shy of a new D model one so cant justify buying one when I could replace them all with the Ds.

That LED flashing light is a strange thing for sure, forgot about it so when it flashed I thought the lads on the other side were having some night piccys, rang them on the walkies to no avail...Ö

To be fair its not that bright and you just forget about it after half an hour.

Good write up.

I have also had all of alarms listed and now have the TXi D would I go back to RX+ no but I have not had any issues with my Delks

IMO the Delkims are the better alarm and have more advanced features yes they take while to set up but as others have said once this is done they are simple to use like any of the Fox alarms.

My only gripe is LED flashing on the receiver when on. WTF

You will get the obvious responses from the people who have/haven't owned the new Delks and those that love to hate Fox and hate to love Delkim....

That aside I can only report my personal experiences. I have always preferred Delkim, (in theory) for the vibration sensing, to me, it is superior to the roller wheel.......BUT......(and there's always a but!) they have not been without their issues.....

I owned the Mk2 TXi's for years, never had a problem with water ingress or major performance issues in the rain, (apart from the odd false bleeps), what did annoy me however was the poor Receiver range and screeching interference if you were within a mile of any other electrical field.... ....the final straw for the alarms was sat at a lake 2 years ago on a social session with two other mates. We set up a central "base camp" on the peninsula we were fishing, none of us more than 50 yards away from our rods. Sat eating dinner one evening I had a single beep, (or should I say a screech) on one of my rods. Nothing else happened and I put it down to a liner or interference.....5 minutes later we had finished dinner and i decided to go and check the rod which was just out of sight from where we were behind a small tree....when I got there the rod was hooped over, the alarm head, (which was on silent) was blinking away, yet the receiver, which was still at the camp with my mates was silent. Yes the batteries were fresh and no it didn't do it again but that was enough, trust had gone. I landed the fish and was very lucky as there were some big old snags around.

After that I bought a set of NTXR's.......hated the size and looks but could not fault them in anyway, performed faultlessly, although it was like having lazer eye surgery every time you had a run... ....however, my heart still yearned for Delkims!

I then heard about the new TXID's and thought my prayers were answered! A mate had a set of MK2 TXi's and he wanted a swap so I went back to Delks for 5 months giving him my NTXR's as I eagerly awaited the launch of the new Delkims. This set of MK2 TXi's were fine, still screeching if the atmospherics were wrong but on the whole OK.

My set of new Dís turned up a few weeks after the official launch and I was very pleased with the size and looks. A read through the instruction manual certainly confirmed that they were complicated but I set them up and tried them out. First time out was a blank on a quick overnighter, I did have a few liners and all appeared wellÖÖdespite the annoying last activation blink on the receiverÖÖ(why?)Ö..anyway onto the next session and I fished with another mate who had also got the new DísÖ..he was the guy whoís receiver packed up in the sun and didnít switch back on for 30 minutesÖ..he was also the guy who had one alarm almost fill up with water after a downpour, but the other one was bone dryÖ? Mine were OK, until the following morning when I had a screaming ďghost runĒÖÖand eventually I had to bring that rod in as the head would not behave.

We were both absolutely gutted but had seen enough to put us off. He sold his and as I had only had mine 14 days I took mine back to the shop where they agreed to swap them for a set of Fox RX+ÖÖ

The RX+ are just like the NTXRís, faultless, (so far) but I hate the size and looks and my heart still yearns for Delkims!

I will go back to the Dís, I know it, no matter how much I try and convince myself otherwise but I will wait and see how things develop and how these niggles get ironed out.

Hopefully a fair review, definitely unbiased!

Braders1978 doesn't own the delkims himself,he just likes to bash the carpforum about how bad they are, according to the few problems he read from others.

Read his other posts, then you know how unbiased he is .Nuff said. When he has saved enough money with his paper round to finally buy them you wont hear him say anything negative about the Delkims any more.

Never had weather related issues with the txi's myself... parts issues oh god yes, but then I had that with the fox RX too.

Is this your own experience braders? I don't want to go back to fox alarms if I can help it, and the timeshare relationship I have with my txi's is beginning to grete a bit...

The receiver does not like the sun,the alarms do not like the rain,so if you can just fish overcast days you will be spot on

Anyone used them in France near pylons?

I was recently at crystal waters and the guy in peg 7 couldn't pick up a signal a couple of meters away on the old txi+. I was on the opposite side and couldn't use the D setting because of the crackling after a tone. Looking to get the Txi D, just need to know they'll work under all circumstances.

I fancy them but i will give it another year, see how the opinions are then. Plus my rx+'s are also spot spot on, switched to rx+ after my old delkims started playing up, and losing sensitivity in heavy rain.

Rather predictably they said like any electrical item, don't leave it in direct sunlight, however, when asked why the heads don't pack up when they are out in direct sunlight all the time, they didn't answer....

Personally i have left receivers on buckets or hung/clipped to my bivvy in the sum for years and never had one fail...

I've seen 3 separate reports of the Receivers either switching themselves off or failing if left in direct sunlight, (then not working again until they have cooled down..... ).....

My mate had a problem with water ingress.....heavy rain, (not a monsoon by any means) and although they didn't fail when he dismantled his bars at the end of the session, water poured out of the speaker hole at the front on 1 of the pair, heaven knows how it got in there but the other one was fine???

Plus there's the ghost runs....

Just can't help but think they have missed a few tricks with the new model. Size wise they are spot on and although they look like an Owl, (not good for a Blade!) they are nice and compact. Why on earth they have made them so complicated though is beyond me, more to go wrong!

I think was a very smaller number of alarms I have not see any negative post since the first few in the rain?

Mine havenít missed a beat in all weathers the only negative is the last activity led flash on the receiver which is total waste time.

Debate seems to have quietened down dramatically on these now.
Quite fancy a set of the TXI-d's. Mostly because of the illuminated slimlites though. which is something I can't do with my R3s.

Donít use NGT alarms sorry chuffer. Atts at £400 cheaper 6 years old now maybe more. Granted spares now and r3s last few years again cheaper and more reliable.

Around £3.50 a month for Atts

Some have to have them to look good and follow the crowd, and some buy alarms that a worth the money.

Vibration Sensors are just as prone to freezing solid; Iíve witnessed it myself when Piking Ė all the dew settles on everything and then a sudden freeze, a Roller or Vibration sensor does not work when encapsulated in solid Ice.
But if itís a Roller Alarm were you can remove the Roller, one drop of Oil on the spindle and it will never freeze (Oil Repels Water= impossible to freeze.)



# These threads on Delkim Alarms always go the same way Ė a slanging match! I just which people would except they are just like ďMarmiteĒ A few people like the taste, the majority hate the stuff.

It did tickle me that line. As it's a delk thread. Years ago in France I had a set of Mk1's with the tx2000 transmitters, absolutely hammered it down for 3 days solid, vertical rain that wouldn't shift. We had a small BBQ in the cooking brolly and we're doing a couple of steaks when one of the delks goes into one tone meltdown with the bobbin stationary. Replaced it with a back up micron and decided to dry it out on a piece of line from the brolly rib over the BBQ. Yep pretty soon the line went and one red delk on the BBQ. Fished it out with tongs it looked like the elephant man. Switched it on and it worked perfectly for the rest of the trip

One situation that Iíve come across and the reason I got rid of my microns years ago. I was pike fishing in the winter, it was a bloody cold morning. My mate came down to see me, I took my eyes off the water to make us a brew. My mate calls out, youíre in! I thought he was joking as Iíd not had a single bleep, but the rod was bent double. The roller wheel had frozen solid. It could have been really naughty and resulted in a badly deep hooked pike, but in this case I got away with it. Sold my microns and bought my first set of delkims, if you use alarms for anything other than just Carp then I think vibration sensing is superior.

A roller wheel is not as good as a vibration sensor for indication. Simple as that. Itís well known. Why would you not want the best indication you can get for your money? If you donít have the funds for delkims then other alarms do the job but if you have the funds then surely you buy the best you can?

P.s. youíre so blatantly the same person I actually feel sorry for you.

Donít r3s do that for half the price ? Or Atts ? they detect less than a MM of movement so why in any situation would you need a more responsive alarm ? Or another sausage that follows crowds.

Blimey. You were really unlucky. A set with sensitivity issues and faulty volume straight out of the box. Did either of them explode or cause a radiation leak as well?

Delkims have a very good sensitivity button. I have used them for the past two decades without any issues.
Fantastic alarms.

If you are paying £419 for a single delkim in South Africa, then Iím calling delkim to ask to be their South Africa agent. Iíll pay my mortgage off quick time. If you are getting a set for that then can you buy them for us and I will knock them out on eBay and we can split the profit.

Surely to join a long thread without reading it all from the beginning, is like starting an Agatha Christie novel 3/4 of the way through. You're never going to be in with a chance of finding the truth. Also you're likely to waste time by repeating questions and answers. Personally I feel the need to read it so I can appreciate everyone's point of view, even if they are wrong.

Iím not sure if Iím doing something wrong but since I swopped to fairy bottle tops my catch rates dropped right off. Iím sure Iím using them right, I turn up, squirt the liquid out into the margins, then use the bottle top as a bobbin. I do this on all three rods. Is this not right?

In person the question would be valid if you joined a convo midnway through as you wouldnít be able to read the transcript of the convo up until the point you joined so what youíre saying is pointless. Itís a different situation entirely.

Clearly the don T was rude enough to not read everyone elseís posts before asking the question. So where was their manners to not give all the previous posters the time of day and ask them to repeat themselves?

I joined this forum and never got much stick at all, you reap what you sow. If someoneís attitude stinks from the off then theyíll get attitude from others.

I mean you asked a stupid question and got the response of Ďread the threadí which If you had done your question would have not needed to be asked as there is talk of people who own sets and have had good and some bad experiences.

You canít be offended that youíre asking a pointless question. It doesnít wash that youíre upset by it. Get a grip youíre a fully grown man (as you stated) and youíre making out that some light banter has ruined your life. Absolute drip behaviour. My 3yr old has more emotional strength than you.

They tend to move on when the attention dries up. No point being a narcissist if you ainít getting the required results. They crave attention, like the naughty kid at school or the school bully. Often they tend to be quite pathetic individuals once you strip the veneer away. Itís no coincidence that these characters are often the ones who go on to have addiction problems, itís a way of self medicating, cos one thing you canít hide from is yourself. No matter how loud, obnoxious and opinionated the front is they put on.

Itís not a load of new members. My guess is Itís the same cock with multiple accounts.

Some people are just desperate for attention. You know the type, the pub loudmouth, everyone just raises their eyebrows when he walks off. Spends his life thinking heís clever and lighting the world up with his wit and knowledge. When actually heís a social misfit and doesnít even realise.

In my experience very loud and obnoxious individuals are normally over compensating for an underlying mental health issue, low self esteem, some borderline personality disorder. Unfortunately itís normally me who gets lumbered talking to them as Iím too polite to tell them to fcuk off like some blokes.

The internetís unfortunately given many of them a voice.

In the recent situation with AZ, it wasn't that he gave advice, he came on here and started telling everyone that did it differently to him that they were noddies, and then if anyone said anything back he'd start crying about being bullied, he brought everything on himself. We have banter on here and for some reason there seems to be a lot of new members joining at the moment that don't get it and start crying or slagging people off if they get a little bit of sarcasm. Oh and not to mention the fake profiles..

"I had no problems at all when I joined asking for advise in fact I felt quite welcome.. I think it all depends how you act as you wouldn't go to join a syndicate all guns blazing causing problems and dishing out abuse"

Guns blazing. lol

You have touched on some truths here. The real issue here is that the main body of daily regulars on here want every single new member to come on here all humble and naÔve so they can and only `they` can show them the way and guide the newbie into their way of thinking. If someone new comes along and starts to offer guys advise they are made as unwelcome as a horsefly. Just because someone is fairly new to the forum doesn't mean they are inexperienced. Some of the gash written by the select few is joke worthy, but everyone else has to bow down to their computer fishing knowledge. As soon as one starts the others come for a back slap and bolster each other up. Shameful. This exact thing has been said before and here it is again.

Yes I scanned through the thread. The same 10 or so people picking them apart from no hands on experience. I'm asking for any info from guys who have bought them.


He probably wrote the manual and showed delkim what to do.He is the yoda of everything carp fishing.

I sense a bit of butt hurt and here Bradburn.


Bet the geezers mum still has to wipe his arse.

Laughable. I'm nearly 40, own two successful businesses, employ 14 staff full time and fish 4 nights a week. What are you guys up to apart from on here all day long.

So come on guys it was a honest question which received a pack instinct dole dosser response. Gives the forum a bad name if anything. If your not in the click then your subject to abuse??

Yes they should and could appeal to everyone rather than the top end of the range. Less features less technology and less cost.

Not used Delkims for years not through fault but through value for money.

Better? I said in a previous post that they both do what they do very well. I personally prefer the delks, but have always used delkims. I have both available to me, in ny possession, available to swap at any point, so this isnt me judging either on stuff ive read, and have chosen the delkims because i prefer them, not because they are better. They both do what you would expect top of the line alarms to do.

Think people are getting unnecessarily hung up on the complexity of settings. It took me half hour to set them all up at home, had a little play, adjusted what i wanted to adjust. Only things id want or need to change on the bank are the response/sensitivity, and volume, both operated by a dial as before, and the night like, which is switched on or off by holding one button down.

What they should do is an EV equivalent in the new casing, make it wireless and have one manual adjustment.
If youíre going to loosely copy the silhouette of a Neville, there should be a simplified option. If they stayed dry, didnít freeze like a roller, didnít require an IT degree, didnít crack like nev cases and cost about £100 theyíd sell **** loads

I donít think anyone uses the same settings for every swim/situation let alone water. I change mine regularly to suit the spots Iím fishing within a swim. My old mk1 txi+ alarms are still going thankfully. Iím young so Iíd probably be fine with the tech of the new alarms but if it was a pain to adjust every alarm each time then itíll defo put me off!

I can't understand why Delkim have decided to put so many, (useless?) Features on the new model, surely that's potentially more to go wrong?

For me, although there's no comparison in the looks department... the RX+ gets my vote out of the two due to being far simpler to operate.

The RX has a basic on/off switch, you are not fannying about pressing 2 or 3 buttons together, then wondering if you have altered one of the 14,000 settings and then it has 3 simple Tone, Sensitivity and Volume dials....on the Delkim you have to read the manual or watch several You Tube tutorials to figure out what to do.

If you fish one water and are happy with one set of settings then fine, but if your circumstances can change and you need to regularly change the settings it's a right ball ache!

Delkim have got it 100% right in the looks and size but why mess around with everything else? The jury is still out in the water ingress issues, Receivers have been switching themselves off and then there's the ghost runs...

I didnt dislike anything about them mate. I bought them when the new txis rumours surfaced, so i could sell my older txis before the market was flooded with them. Was a financial/convenience thing. Never had any bother with the rx+, they worked as well as youd expect, did everything very well. but i was always going to get the new delkims, as ive always used delkim.

If everyone waited 2 years to buy anything to see if it stands that test of time, no one would ever buy anything. Cant buy that car, it might develop a fault after 80k miles

My txi were perfect for two years and started playing up and over about a year became unreliable, sadly having them serviced was only a short term fix. These new ones may be better for reliability but only time will tell, personally I would expect many years of trouble free service from them before I would say they were a good purchase. Let's be honest they are one of the most expensive alarms out there. I've had much cheaper alarms that have been more reliable, atts, and the fox bashers won't agree but my old rx alarms were far more reliable.

Well, they got drenched, and covered in muck, from a days worth of rain. Now i would say that is good enough for me to say i have not got water ingress issues on mine, so i dont need to keep spares just in case.

The issues have been first time out in the rain, mine have been fine.

How have they proven good, we're you testing them for delkim for a few years before they released them?

Mine have been out through the rain yesterday, covered in muck from all the dust from
The floor bouncing up onto them. Not put a foot wrong. Think as with all things there will be a few wronguns that get through, but mine have been spot on. Im happy to put my rx+ up for sale now as these have proven good

In all the videos I have watched on the new delkims I have not seen the flashing led mentioned but I don't think that would bother me but the other problems being reported have put me off for a while.Im not saying never but will let the teething problems be sorted out

With how hot it was my theory would be an overheat, probably because the LED was constantly active. Maybe there more delicate circitury in a receiver than the alarm heads?

Valid point though about the alarms.

Get that but why make one capable of withstanding heat and the other not?

Surely it is reasonably foreseeable that something designed for 100% outdoor use could be exposed to long periods of heat and should be able to withstand all the elements as far as possible? After all, have you ever seen a warning on a set of Receiver or alarm instructions about problems in direct sunlight?

Whilst i completely agree with your comments on phones/TV's etc most alarm heads and receivers are made out of the same materials and have very similar component parts...... ......i personally have left various Receivers, (Fox, Delkim, Neville etc) outside my door on a bucket or hung of the end of my peak and never had an issue....

Hopefully for the guy concerned it was a one off...

Maybe they are designed to allow them to be sat in the heat. Would make sense as they are likely to be out in direct sunlight for periods of time. Receivers, phones, tvs etc, arent designed to be outside in the sun, so dont jave anything built in to help

If that's the case then why don't our alarm heads pack up all the time.....

Exactly. Canít blame delkim for a lack of knowledge of electrical items. Hang your phone in the same position and see what happens.

A lot of electrical equipment will shut down if it gets too hot. Moral of the story, dont leave electrical equipment in direct sunlight.

To be fair anything black sat in direct sunlight with the recent heat has the potential to cook, Iím sure someone mentioned there fox alarms did the same thing in sunlight.......

Little flashing light is a good thing as you donít have the reed switch anymore to glance at to know your receiver is on.......

I really like mine so far. The blink wasnt annoying, apart from not knowing what it was. It needs something to tell you its on as you cant tell from the switches as you could on the older models

If the delkim receiver has got that built in then surely they should tell owners or warn them about leaving in direct sunlight.Perhaps they should be called delkim gremlins as don't like water or sunlight .It does seem most people who own them do like them though surely that's a good sign

I left my iPhone in the sun the other day and it locked itself with a message it was overheating and basically shut down until it cooled off which took a good 30 minutes in a cool bag. Maybe the receiver is similar. Donít understand the blinking receiver problem itís not Blackpool illuminations itís a dull blink I like it as I know itís on.
