    Does what I want, but not perfect

    posted by IvarForkbeard on 12/05/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    It works with my carrier here in Canada! The battery really does last a long time, I believe more than four hours the last time I checked. Good speed, enough to stream youtube.
    Cons:
    My iPhones lose the connection quite often, and take a long time to connect. It seems to freeze up every day or two, requiring...

    Best priced and good quality thermometer

    posted by IvarForkbeard on 10/23/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    The build quality seems pretty good. It takes standard 9 volt batteries. The laser sight makes it much easier to be sure what you're measuring. Plenty accurate enough. Intuitive controls - you don't really need the manual!
    Cons:
    You cannot turn off the sound, which is loud! I can't measure temperatures at night, it will wake up the family!

    Super handy, low consuption meter

    posted by IvarForkbeard on 10/23/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    This little guy is bright, consumes very little power, is large enough to read from across a room, but small enough to wedge into a small corner.
    Cons:
    The cable is rather short. It doesn't work if wired up backwards.

    Invaluable for off-grid!

    posted by IvarForkbeard on 10/23/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    I wish I had found this meter when I first went off-grid. It's so great to be able to monitor which wires are carrying which DC loads. I can't believe I tried to get along without it for so long.
    Cons:
    Can't think of any really.
