Confirmed as DEL mentioned, the 7135 based drivers do produce amp readings very close, very consistent between the UT50B DMM and the UT210E. Also confirmed, as Dale alluded to, the startling but expected contrast in readings of triple and quad FET DD mods - 8A-9A on the UT50B vs. 11A-12A on the 210E. I always knew my DMM readings were way low on these lights simply due to the fact of what lumens I'd measure vs. the amps.

To compare readings between the two meters, I took my triple X6 modded light and measured normally with the UT50B, but then added the UT210E clamped over one of the UT50B's leads, and the UT210E actually read slightly lower, about 0.05A lower in the 8A range of readings. This confirms to me the readings I'm getting on the UT210E are pretty accurate compared to my UT50B DMM, and the droppage from 11A down to 8A is due to the added resistance of the DMM (and it's leads) itself.

So, it's all good - very happy with the meter Smile. Hope you all find it a step up as well. I think it's great we got so many signing up for this meter, since we will be on equal ground, plus we will probably get a good idea on reliability to see the # of DOA's and failures over time, which I hope we don't get many of, of course...

I ordered january 14th. It is still “Ready to Process” and I think it will stay that way until the festivities of the Chinese Newyear are over.

I always think long and hard before I say something really stupid.

Meter contains a pair of alkaline batteries. Probably that could be one of the reason for delay for some countries. About 20% of US orders have been shipped when I last checked.

Since I stirred the pot here, I’ll report: I had placed two orders that were separated into 4 different shipments by BG. I sent an email to them asking if they would be able to ship everything before Chinese New Year. Within a few hours I had shipping notifications for two of the orders, and an email back saying that one of the other two shipments (the clamp meter) would be shipped within 48 hours, and the last shipment might be delayed a few days due to stock issues (which isn’t a big deal to me at all, it was some cheap drill bits).

well, anyway i think it’s safe to say that this GB born from a shy idea has well passed the requirements to be considered a success, right? :touches wood :hat:

lol mine just shipped as well. Now I can only hope there isn’t a huge backlog at the shipping office so it makes it out of China before everything shuts down. Either way, I’m pleased with BG. Thanks again for organizing this, freeme.

“Shipping e-mail” received about two hours and a half.

I don’t want to rain on your parade, but I wouldn’t start dancing yet. Shipped just means it left Banggood. It still has 3-5 more stops in China before you are home free.

For instance my tracking number has had 8 updates since it shipped 5 days ago. As far as I can tell, it’s still in China. It hasn’t updated in a while though, so I’m hoping that means it’s either on a boat or plane or sitting in customs in Chicago.

Can I still get in on the UNI-T UT210e clamp meter buy?? I am confused about where to go to buy? Thanks.

My Uni-T is here, came pretty quick… 2 weeks from order date.

Neat small clamp meter. Seems to stabilize faster than my Mastech. You have to punch the top button to shift to DC, then the middle button to zero, and you’re up and running.

Does it hold a steady zero on DC?

My current and or voltage measurements are only relevent to anything that I measure.
