    I'm after a damp meter but would prefer a pinless one, anyone got one they can recommend?

    Very good & good value, works as well as if not better than some costing hundreds.

    Yes, its exactly what you asked for. For further information I also use a pin type as a backup if the non invasive meter indicates high damp levels as they can give false readings, some motorhomes have a thin aluminium panel bridging joints in ceilings for example and this would give a high reading on a pinless type.
