Yes, I have one.
It is particularly useful for logging current and voltage simultaneously.
You can log to your phone or it is able to log to its own micro SD card if you supply one.
Slight downside is that a small amount of the plastic case needs to be removed to use the micro SD card slot and this invalidates the CAT rating.
I am only using it for ELV so the CAT rating is not important to me for this device.
Ah, that's why they don't pre-cut the slots by default. You can also take apart the case to use the slot, but it is a big hassle.

The firmware updates over the past year have made it a lot more usable, but I hope that connection stability and the user interface can be further improved.

I think the new firmware beta has a download for logging. So no need to open mosh nor deflower it.

I just wish there was a way to calibrate it.

I'v got one about summer this year, and beside some random software bugs that seems to have been ironed out with the last firmware update it's been super.

i needed it for doing some fairly long voltage and current measurements where i needed resolution down to at least 0.1 mA/mV and this fit the bill perfectly.
My only gripe might be that the battery properly only last about 2 months but i think its because we access the bluetooth to much.
It could be cool is Dave would do a review of one.

If there is interest i might do a short video on it going through some of the features.

That would be awesome. I've been looking at the Mooshimeter for quite a while. The problem with devices like this is, they're only as good as the software. How reliable is the software? How reliable is the bluetooth connection? Do you get disconnects from time to time?

Stable on android devices.
Battery problems solved with heat-shrink on the battery holder - Battery holder has sharp edges out of the box.

Any recommandations where to buy from in the EU? I see two distributors on their page, Elektor and Robotshop, any experience with either one?

Other than that are there multiple versions (revisions) or anything else to know before ordering?

I bought mine from RobotShop, all was fine and fast to Greece.

Thanks, I was about to order but it seems that you can't do energy directly - and by directly I mean with the smartphone connected all the time if needed or even from a log. I know you can get it from the log with a small script or in a spreadsheet but I wanted something direct: plug it, let it run for a few hours, read the number.
There's a discussion at https://moosh.im/f/topic/measuring-watt-hours/ but they focus on B/W limits for spiky values, this isn't what I'm looking for, one measurement per second (or even 10s) should be enough.

Ok, I gave up waiting for something better and ordered one (elektor.de had a "sale", actually is still up even if it says up to 30th of October, not a fantastic price at 120euro+5 shipping but probably the best this side of the pond). Engineering/development seems to be almost dead but unless and until something better is available I'll try to use what is (I just hope it still works with the next update on my phone...).

This was the original mooshimeter thread I think so I'ma gonna necro-post here.

Is this thing dead? todt? mort, muerte, gone from this mortal coil or is it just "restin"

I was cruising the internets and noticed the home website is still up, but vendors like amazon, sparkfun, robotshop, rct. show it discontinue-ded.

Just the other day I was searching to see if there was such a thing as a multichannel multimeter and I found the Mooshimeter. I would have bought one or two, but the lack of any for sale certainly makes it look dead.

Surprised they stopped selling it, you'd think its easy cash flow to let the distributors deal with sales?
I'm not even aware of any decent clones that exist.

I would have to guess that for hobbyists, smart plugs with energy monitoring and generic DC power meter modules are a cheaper way to get the feature most multimeters don't have - power measurement. The Mooshimeter still doesn't have proper support for an external shunt, greatly limiting its usability.

In the end, what we need is an open source Bluetooth multimeter.
