So Cute! – iCON Current Flow VU Meter (500uA) Reviews

posted by tubegeek on 05/29/2013 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Small. Accurate. Useful. Cheap. Did I say small? Front-panel real estate is hard to come by - with these units you can add oh-so-hip analog metering to almost any device and - as others have noted - they are easy to customize with your own scale and graphics. The low price means I'll be emboldened to try customizing them, adding a "peak hold" LED by drilling through them, etcetera.
Cons:
They are plastic (what would you expect at this price point?) and I would have preferred metal. In some applications they might be too small.
Other:
The round mounting hole is MUCH easier to make than a rectangular hole would be.
Bottomline:
A useful TINY meter for a TINY price!
