    Really flimsy, but it works

    posted by McKaamos on 11/12/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Well, it's fairly small and comes with a detachable part for the other side of the cable you want to test. It's also easy to use and only requires a 9v battery.
    Cons:
    It really is quite flimsy. The plastic is extremely easy to break. I broke off a small edge just by putting the battery in.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month
