New Uni-t ut18 voltage and continuity testers
« on: December 03, 2016, 07:20:42 pm »
Have you seen the new uni-ut18 series?

http://www.uni-trend.com/productslist.aspx?ProductsCateID=894&BaseInfoCateID=894&CateID=894&CurrCateID=894

I lost my trusty ut15c at work and now I'm looking for a new one. The ut18 c and d looks nice and they both cost $30 on ebay but there isn't really any reviews or pictures of the board. The d model looks nice with it's big lcd but it doesn't work without batteries so the c model is maybe safer.

What's your opinion?, Should I order the ut18 c or d model or the old $10 cheaper ut15c? I'll post some pictures of the board for sure.

I know that uni-t doesn't make the safest meters but there isn't much that can go wrong with voltage testers.

It looks really cool!

I ordered the UT18C yesterday.

In my opinion the C  is the best of the series. For this type of meter I prefer the LEDs to the LCD screen. It is mentioned in the manual that they have an almost instantaneous response. The LCD display OTOH has a delay of about a second.

I'll make a review and teardown video as soon as I get it.
