    Great small Ampère meter

    posted by gijsnoorlander on 04/20/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Really simple to use and surprisingly accurate for a good price. According to the specs, it should accept a wide range for the power (4.5 - 28V). I tested it on 5.2Volt DC.
    Cons:
    May have been nice if there was some window-frame and plastic mounting frame included. Mounting this neatly in a home-build DIY...

    Pros:

    Cons:
    - Soldering of driver-board was not very good, but could be fixed in no-time. - When using with Arduino-libraries, make sure yo...

    Pros:

    Cons:
    When USB cable is inserted in scanner it is near impossible to remove again. You have to press the scan button to scan and the...

    Feels well-built, but may stress the USB-connector

    posted by gijsnoorlander on 08/28/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - feels well-built - European power-plug - 1000mA charger (charges the HTC Desire faster than on the USB-connector alone)
    Cons:
    There is one major design-flaw. The cradle is probably intended to be used for more models than the HTC Desire. This results ...
