analog owns! – 500uA VU Current Meter Reviews

posted by Leodahsan on 09/04/2010 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
- Easy to use.
- Really 500uA FSD.
- back scale made of metal, and can be easily removed with a knife.
- will not burn out like many VU that easily (mine got 2 cells [3v] by mistake and was not burn't)
Cons:
- front acryllic is glued with tape, don't have a socket.
- back anode and cathode very weak (common to all VU)
- could be a little cheaper, but as they are not builded anymore they need to be expensive...
Other:
works very fine on many applications, used mine on I.R. detector!
Bottomline:
Buy it, on many countries these are very very hard to find.
Deal class: Cool! (4/5)
