Paranormal occurrences and activity have been documented pretty much since the beginning of civilization, but even today the topic remains controversial at best.

With science based approaches taking the center stage, we’re starting to get fact based information and document any supernatural activity the proper way – nobody knows where that will lead, so there are interesting times for people interested in the field.

The main cause of paranormal activity is believed to be the souls of those who passed away (or however you want to call their ethereal presence).

The theory is that they do not completely perish – if they died in situations of extreme emotional distress or had strong connections to the world when they were alive, they continue existing even after death.

With paranormal research and ghost hunting technology getting cheaper and more accurate all the time, it has now become possible for anyone to gear up and start investigating on their own. Whether it’s for personal or professional reasons, you can start to actively research any occurrences right away.

Among the basic paranormal ghost hunting equipment, EMF meters, fast action thermometers and sensitive audio recorders are the things you need to have.

One of the first and most popular devices to incorporate the first two into one package was the Mel Meter – created by Gary Galka in his quest to answer questions about whether his deceased daughter is trying to communicate with her family, after which he found that there were many other people who would want something like that.

The original Mel meters are still the best in their class, so if you are gearing up for your own paranormal investigations, it’s practically a must have device.

Product Overview

The Mel 8704R is a 3-in-1 device that can be used for detecting ghost presence and traces of activity at any location. It is compact, sturdy and very sensitive – suited for any kind of investigations, with a built in digital readout screen with activity recorder, a digital ambient temperature meter and an EMF fluctuation meter with strength detection ability.

The EMF meter on the 8704R is sensitive enough to detect fluctuations down to 30Hz, which is in the Extreme Low Frequency range where most of the paranormal activity has been known to occur.

The special “burst” mode records the data at a very high speed – faster than you can see it in real time (which is where the recording feature comes in handy).

The ambient thermometer uses a digital processor for instant readout, so you will know instantly if the temperature (caused by ghost movement, which is theorized to leave a cold wake as it moves) changes.

The EMF and its strength and the temperature are displayed on the decently sized LED display, which also has an infrared friendly backlight that can be used in total darkness. The highest/lowest points are recorded internally for later review, so you can be sure you won’t miss anything.

The device is powered by a 9V alkaline battery, which will last up to 40 hours – a good battery life that will let you work without worries for long periods of time.

I still don’t know why other paranormal ghost hunting equipment doesn’t pay more attention to this, because you need a long battery life when every second counts!

Pros & Cons

The Mel 8704R is pretty much the gold standard. The Pros include:

  • A sturdy housing with internal shielding and no flexing/creaking/movement that could disturb the readings;
  • A real time ambient temperature sensor;
  • An EMF reader sensitive enough to work at 30 Hz in the ELF range and a strength indicator;
  • A long battery life.

The cons, I suppose, are superficial:

  • There is no battery included in the package (also a rechargeable battery would’ve been nice);
  • The recorder can only store one data session – it would be nice to be able to store multiple sessions;
  • A continuous time-based recorder would be perfect, and not that hard to implement.

Who is This Product For?

If you want to do your own paranormal research and ghost hunting, the Mel 8704R is a must have. It’s one of the first and still one of the best devices in its class, and it will work great along with any other hardware you might have.

I also have to say that this is a great thing to have just around the house if you’re worried about Electro Magnetic Fields affecting your health.

You can test the strength of those fields around the house or neighborhood and maybe try to adjust them. I was getting headaches from certain cellphones, but not others, and sure enough, their radio transmission strength turned out to be higher – who knows how else we’re affected by this?


The EMF/temperature meter is a must have for any paranormal investigation, and the Mel 8704R is the golden standard.

If you’re planning on doing research into paranormal occurrences or go “ghost hunting” in layman’s terms, you simply cannot start without one.

  1. Gotta love the paranormal, when it comes to paranormal or metaphysical products, it may not be easy to find a good one. I’m surprised I even found one with a 9/10 rating, for only $99 or so, seems like a really good price I’d expect somewhere in the $300 range, at the least. I’d go paranormal exploring, only with a friend though, I could never go alone…

  2. This is amazing! Amazing. My imagination works way to well and gives me horror scenario when least needed but with this..I think I could actually get a minor heart attack..I’m so getting this ghost instrument!! If I understood right it works on minor temperature fluctuations and electro magnetic fields? And if I go in the woods at night and my phone start to ring..then ghost hunting instrument goes off and I freak that a possible scenario?

  3. Wow, this is kind of spooky to actually have a tool that spots ghosts.

    While I have a strong interest in paranormal activities, like many, I’m a bit sceptical when it comes to ghost hunting tools. How do you know they really work or was it just a scam?

    Either way, I’m tempted to get my hands on one now. Would love to hear more in details on how this works.

    Thanks for sharing!


    1. Just do a simple search for this tool on Google Anh – you will see it is certainly NOT a scam product ( we wouldn’t cover it here if it was! ). It is used by ALL the professionals in the field.

  4. hello there
    very interesting site:))) I was always watching the thriller and I thought is just in the movies.
    I didn’t know there is such an instrument. To be honest I believe in communication with the spirits and were many proves that showed us that they live among us .
    Thanks for sharing and I am interested to see what else you will bring.
    There are more instruments, cameras as we see in the movies?
    have a nice day

  5. Hi Chris! I am not really into paranormal activities but I’ve found this part when you said that we can measure strength of different fields.

    Have you tried this inside of your house? I am listening lately about harming effect of electrical grid on our health

    Do you have any thoughts?

    Thank you!

    1. I have heard about that theory Branka yes. As for any thoughts on it? Well I suppose I’m still a little on the fence ( I don’t have enough details on it! )

  6. Dear ChrisEvans,

    Very interesting reviews. I do believe in paranormal activities, but sometimes I am still skeptical about some devices and tools can detect the present of paranormal activities. From what I know, all form of spirits even ghosts do exist in the other dimension. Yes, we can see and hear them because of spirit interaction. I want to do more research about this. 
