Nice – iCON Current Flow VU Meter (500uA) Reviews

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

Pros:
-Cheap and gets the job done. Does what it's supposed to.
Cons:
-I bought 3 and 1 was broken. I don't think it was damaged in transit, it looked like it was just poor manufacturing - the plastic went so far down that it hit the needle, so the needle couldn't move. If you buy these, make sure you buy at least one more than you need, in case one is broken, so you don't have to wait a month to get another before you can continue working, like me.
Other:
-These are TINY. DX gives the dimensions accurately, but somehow I still didn't realize how small they would be - make sure you get out a ruler to make sure you know how big these are!
-It is really easy to open them up and take out the orange "icon" logo, which I think makes them look a lot better. Literally, it takes about 30 seconds. With some effort, you can replace the white background with your own ticks/etc, or replace the orange logo with something neater.
Bottomline:
A great choice if you need a small vu meter.
