What I do like it that it takes a standard battery, one that I would likely have around at home anyway. I dislike ones that have a special battery like a button cell which means I have to stock an extra for possibly just that tool.
The reviews make it look good but again we have no idea who the reviewers are so it still could be the worst one on the market and still get great reviews or again it could really be that good.
If I needed one and I don't I'd get this one as the price isn't bad. If you don't have one then I have to say they do have their uses but I don't depend on them for being as accurate as they claim. But even at that reduced dependence it is hard to find a tool that cheap that is even close to what these can do.
So head on out and get one and then write a review here. We are all waiting. Go on now, get it done before the thread fades away and well all forget about it......
The button cells are not that expensive anymore, you can get them at the dollar store and there are only a couple of sizes that are used in the instruments that I have.
