EEVblog:
Review of the new $70 Miniware DT71 LCR Tweezers, is it any good?

TLDR; It's not very accurate, doesn't have much resolution, limited ranges, accuracy issues between Auto and Manual modes, can't be used while charging, lose the custom charge lead and you are screwed, tilt head detection has a bit of an alignment issue, LED testing is limited, and the secondary measurements basically don't work.
But for $70 it's very handy and nothing else can touch it, and the probe design is gorgeous.
Absolutely no match for the much more expensive SmartTweezers.
Maybe they can fix some stuff in firmware to improve it.

No go if you ask me, especially with the asinine charging setup.

that it doesn't do auto polarity for LEDs could be good thing if you have to check if a bunch of LEDs are mounted the right way

I guess having two different blink frequencies for the different polarity could work too

True, if you can't get visual confirmation.
But if machine placed then they are either all going to be correct or all wrong!

It's the Achilles heel
