plexus:
I searched the forum and coulnd't find an appropriate general purpose 121GW thread. So here it is!

Question: what are the various straps in the case to be used for? I can't figure them out.

Here is an unboxing video I made today when mine arrived:



I'll be RTFM now that I have played around with it a bit. It's a very nice meter so far. Feels well built!

Mr.B:
I don't have mine yet.
I will be in wave 2 of the shipping (March?).

My question:
The manual specifically says: Battery Type: 4 x 1.5 V AA alkaline battery (ANSI/NEDA 15 A or IEC LR6)

Can anyone (Dave) confirm if it is safe to use the slightly higher voltage Energizer L91 Ultimate Lithium

Many thanks

Quick Capacitance check on mine against my HP box. Does that very close 😎

Quick resistance check against my 0.02% (1ohm 0.03%) Resistance box. Temp is 25-26 degrees btw.

It does ok below 1 ohm but that territory isn't fair on two wire so just 1 ohm and up was all I have included.

Also tested against some Vishay 0.005% (some pairs) I have 'laying' around  ::)

I just got mine earlier today. I'm pretty happy with it so far, but I haven't really gave it any purposeful use yet.

In regards to the question about the straps, I'm pretty sure they're for securing the multimeter and leads like this. I also see that there's another strap on the back, Dave must have liked that multimeter strap patent so much, that he wanted one too ;)
