Thats pretty cool Andy. I can think of a few scenarios where this would come in handy.

On a side note, thank you for alerting on the malware in a previous post. I wanted to PM you, but this forum doesn't have the option.

It arrived yesterday unboxing experience was both good and bad.
It is a nice fairly accurate meter with a large illuminated display, good quality leads and a selection of accesories and runs off low cost 1.5v AA batteries. Duty cycle and Frequency readings against a 1000hz 50% duty cycle spare wave agree with my Owon oscilloscpe.

Where it fell down was the Bluetooth feature which refused to pair with any of my Android devices however I suspect this may be a problem in the factory setup of this particular example.
I have emailed the UK supplier and am awaiting a reply. I have used the company before and expect a positive outcome. The Android app seems well written and looks brilliant.
I will post an update when I get a response from the supplier.

Update 4 weeks on -- I am now using this meter as my everyday meter, on the resistance scales it is more consistant and accurate than my other two meters and has 20amp max current range. I still carry my UNIT-T UT203 as it has an integral 400amp DC current clamp.
Bluetooth feature has proved handy on a couple of occaisions.

I can highly recommend this meter especially for anybody working singlehanded.
