I received my U1252B yesterday, 20 days to Sweden with the eBay Global Shipping program...

My meter was calibrated June 2012, and the battery was of course dead.

Anyway, i am very satisfied with my buy so far  :-DMM

I find it hard to believe they are gone, and if so, I wish I had bought another.  It's a great meter for the money.

Last I heard, he had lots of meters. So, probably not gone just yet. However, Jerry, you might want to get one this time around. I don't know how long they'll last.

My second U1252B unit arrived from the USA in perfect condition.

And the Keysight IR to bluetooth interface arrived from the German distributor.
I am kind of amazed how good the free software works on the iPad with up to three DMM's at the time.


Thanks for the great suggestion, to get one of these handhelds.

I have not even tried it on a windows PC

Here are some screen shots of the iPad app
Especially the fact, that you can use math to combine 3 DMMs to a fourth measurement is a really great feature.
And it works so perfectly.

The same with android phone  ;D . But not perfectly . The decimal point in the logging diagram is not correct . It shows 2.3345 kV instead of 233.45 V  ;D

Hello folks - my 2 units Agilent U1252B have arrived yesterday - everything is OK - properly shipped.
The units have calibration documents from mid 2012 - one of the Powerex NiMH 9V rechargeable batteries was dead - both have been replaced - I would recommend this seller.

Did it pass through customs or does eBay have a way around that with their global shipping thing? Did you pay a lot in duties and taxes?

So these iPad/phone apps are connected using the U1117A, right? Is that all that is needed in addition to the meter? How does it receive multiple meters at the same time? Do you have to aim IR ports at the U1117A?

Oh, it looks like you need one U1117A per meter??

Yes, one interface per meter. If you're using a PC, you can also use the IR-to-USB cable.

Yes

Yes


How does it receive multiple meters at the same time?

Through Bluetooth "wireless" connections


Do you have to aim IR ports at the U1117A?

Aim ? No, you just snap in the BT dongle at the back of the meter like this ..




Oh, it looks like you need one U1117A per meter??

Yes, each meter need it's own U1117A or U1177A.

The eBay listing has gone away multiple times before. So, that's just circumstantial.

I just sent a message to get a definitive answer.

They're not gone yet. It's just a delay getting a new listing online. So, if you want one (or another one), just wait for the listing to re-appear.

Oh damn!  You mean the temptation to buy a second one is going to continue.  When will this torture end? :-[

Thanks bitseeker! Not sure why I dragged my feet so much pulling the trigger on one or two of these. Not going to miss out this time.

Hmm, let me see: When they run out or when you get your second, whichever comes first. It's TEA time! ;D

Sure thing. Enjoy!
