The Batlogger M has my 60 day 100% Satisfaction Guarantee & extra year's warranty

Hi there,

What can I say about the Elekon Batlogger M?

If you're looking for a hand-held full spectrum recorder, the Elekon Batlogger M is the one to get if you don't need a sonogram display; otherwise check out the Anabat Walkabout and the Wildlife Acoustics EM Touch.

All units record bat calls very efficiently, but the main consideration is going to be personal preference.

Personally, I'd choose the Batlogger M if you want an efficient and easy to use hand-held bat recorder.

With all of these units (except the EM Touch) you'll also get a free bat calls book worth £35: either British Bat Calls by Jon Russ, Social Calls of the Bats of Britain and Ireland by Neil Middleton et al, Bats of Britain & Europe by Christian Dietz & Andreas Kiefer, Is That a Bat? by Neil Middleton or a £35 voucher.

I want you to be 100% happy with your purchase so call me on 0333 9000 927 for advice.

Warm Regards,


Your Elekon Batlogger M comes with my 60 day 100% Satisfaction Guarantee and my exclusive 3 year warranty for £1650 including UK delivery and VAT
(non-UK delivery will be charged at cost after purchase and we can supply without VAT)

Download Manual

The BATLOGGER M is an advanced bat detector and recording system for bat calls. It is a compact and versatile tool with a lot of features for scientists and all people interested in bat protection.
The ultrasonic sounds of the bats are recorded unaltered and in best audio quality (real-time, full spectrum). The BATLOGGER M can be used for active acoustic monitoring and as bat detector. The integrated live monitoring (heterodyne, with automatic tuning) with speaker or headphones simplify work.

Advanced bat detector

Due to this sophisticated tool the work of the bat observer is made much easier. The built-in live monitoring (mixer, resp. superheterodyne) tunes to the different call frequencies automatically. On detected bat activity the recording can be started automatically or manually and the most important informations are displayed directly and clearly.

Individually adjustable

Different observation situations require different recording settings. Scheduled recording, permanent recording, instant recording and different triggers (for call identification) can be set up. Charts and statistics summarize the recorded data clearly and concisely and can be exported for further processing.

Comment from a client:

"My bat detector microphone failed during a dawn survey and knew that I had a group of dusk surveys starting in two days time. I was not in a good place as I did not have a spare, but my equipment was less than a year old.

After my survey I contacted Martin by email and he called me back on the same day, a few hours later, after a quick nap. He told me he did not have a part in stock, but had already contacted the supplier on my behalf.

The next day I received a replacement part, free of charge and express delivered from Switzerland. I thought it was amazing, and could not believe it was resolved so quickly.

Due to Martin's exceptional service I was good to go with the surveys, and I really would like to thank Martin and Wildlife Countryside Services for making the dusk surveys happen."
