Interesting.
The only two USA multimeter factories I know of are Fluke and UEI

"Coming Soon – October 2015".

How do you even get one? I clicked on a few distributors from the list and got absolutely nothing.

Any meter that needs charging can't be very usable.

It very well may be. Triplett seem to make all sorts of stuff, including $5 flashlights, which obviously come from the same source as free with $25 purchase from Harbor Freight.

It is UT181A with exact same graphic. Their Photoshop skills are on point.

I doubt it is made at all. Triplett is one of those "take any junk you can get your hands on and put your logo on it" companies. Probably did not work out that way with this meter.
