    "The world's smallest wireless multimeter, DSO and logger"
    There have been at least a couple other threads on this device back in the past. I just got an email that says they are back in stock. They are offering a 10% discount if you use code : POK-WELCOME
    If it performs as advertised, it could be a handy tool for chasing elusive gremlins with the logger feature. I have not used one so I am no authority on it. If you have, let us know what you think.

    I have one. It works, it's small, I haven't used it much. Besides being small, the nice feature is the remote display. With a standard multimeter there is always the juggling of the leads and the device so it can be seen. I don't know that I really have a use for it other than its a cool piece of kit. If I read the manual correctly, the oscilloscope function only works to 60v AC. I was hoping it would work at a higher voltage so I could check the inverter output.

    The web site says only 42V AC.

    Build a resistance bridge to increase the upper range. Easy and cheap. It would only require a few resistors. I looked over their website to try to find out what the input impedance is and was unable to find it. This is a basic spec for any meter and should be easily located. The impedance would be required to build a proper bridge for higher voltage measurements. Without it, I'm just guessing.

    looking at their "Join the community" posts, it looks like customer service isn't their strong point. Lots of complaints, not lots of help. I tried to create an account to talk to them and that also was unsuccessful.

    Ken, I bought mine during their Kickstarter campaign. They have been pretty good with posting updates and keeping their backers informed. This is a start-up, so I would expect some hiccups along the way.

    works great, I also was a kickstarter buyer and yes, they are a startup so they may be working out the support side, but they've been good online. recommended!
