Default Neat stocking filler volt meter

this plugs into your cigarette socket to read out voltage, cheap as chips under 2 inc postage make a great stocking filler.

Got one about 3 weeks ago and it's perfect. As you say "cheap as chips"

Ridiculous - how can they do it at that price ?

Ordered a couple will report on calibration when I get them.

Have you seen the other items !!!

There are 48 LED square modules which look just like the ones I have. I have three of these lighting our living area, sometimes I turn one off, just too bright.

I have the bluetooth ODB2 dongle, works at treat with the Android Torque app though Torque warns against cheap Chinese dongles.

Look at the LED torches, make ALDI look expensive.

Chinese quality is improving all the time, how they make the stuff for the money I have no idea, let alone ship it halfway around the world. calibration not horrendously important if they are just used as a comparator. I neglected to check out their other items. But will do so.

We've been using 2 of these for over a year now.

They're brilliant. Service is great from the Chinese companies too - the 1st one we ordered took a while to arrive (not the sender's fault) so I messaged them saying it hadn't arrived yet. Received profuse apologies and the assurance I would get another one with their compliments by return. It arrived 5 days later, followed 3 days later by the 1st one posted .
