Keysight U1177A Bluetooth adapter.

This is for Win/Androide.

Is 34 USD + 10 USD shipping a good price?

Be careful! The U1177A works with Windows and Android vs the U1117A which is for iOS as well.  The U1177A is therefore much cheaper.

[EDIT] Corrected what works with what.

The only reason you need the 1117 is for iOS.  The 1177 works with Windows.

Also the bluetooth range, by design the U1117A range is 100 meters, while U1177A is 10 meters.

Thank you all for looking out for me.  I am well aware of OS and distance features.  Like someone pointed out in Ebay U1252B thread, I can make a wireless kit by getting this cheaper bluetooth unit and pairing it with cheap android tablet, and the total will still be less then more expansive iOS unit.

So.  U1177A.  The Keysight has them for 51 USD.  Amazon have them for 46 USD.  I found a place where I can get them for 34 USD, but with shipping it will be almost same as Amazon, however, that is per one unit.  I have two multimeters, so I will be buying two which will negate shipping cost so I am looking at price that, in the end, will be below Amazon.  The question is.  Should I go for it or is there something better out there?  Black Friday deal?  Christmas special?  I can wait, there is no hurry.

This is not going to work since I am in the middle of corn fields in Indiana.
