Does anyone know the difference between the Uni-T 210E & Uni-T 210E PRO?

The Wuben E6 is cool. There was a better deal a while back and I got it for about $25.

The UI is severely lacking for an E-switch light. Three modes with memory and double click for strobe.

It’s got a big reflector for an AA/14500 light and that combined with the Osram emitter makes it a serious mini thrower.

But this one comes with 14,500 extra batteries .

About $10?
As far as I can tell, the Pro version can measure AC Frequency. The non-Pro doesn’t have that function.
The Frequency function – so far – has not been able to pick up on PWM square waves.
I haven’t tried it on much yet to see if that’s the case for different PWM Freqs.
All the Best,
Jeff

Not a deal, per se, but a good price on great leads. Most of the others out there are a smaller wire and can’t carry much current (fine for most things, though). For real hotrod lights you’d probably want to go to a heavier wire than these.

Whaaaaat

I’ve heard people refer to these things as “roach clips” but that brings a whole new dimension to the fun you can have with alligator clips. Wow, just wow.

Anyone know of a good sounding Bluetooth sound bar for a TV. Would also like to connect my phone, wirelessly to hear music.
Budget, budget, budget.

Check out TCL’s soundbars on Amazon Here . I needed one and a friend highly recommended them. Very happy with mine. They are great quality for the price.

This is the one I got on sale for $100….. here

I have two different Vizio 2.1 sound bars and really like them for the price. Models SB3621n-H8 (newer) and SB3821-C6 (older).

I've never owned a soundbar.

I have my TV hooked up to some budget, but nice, computer speakers.

my sound bar is behind the couch . I’m loosing my hearing a bit and having it across the room was causing me to turn the volume up a bit too high for the other family members

So it’s closer and quieter where it is

The 210E Pro is a 6000 count meter versus a 2000 count meter. With tools just about like our light programmers one can basically update/calibrate and add functions to the 210E.

Thank you both for the clear cut answers & comparison chart. I appreciate that.

I am thinking considering my limited knowledge, the 210E will probably do me just fine.

Thank you. But I am somewhat confused. Are you saying the 210E can be upgraded by the user??

Also wondering about the “count”? Amazon says th3 210E PRO is 2000 count. A picture shows this also. Is this a misprint at Amazon?

Check it out… The 210E can be almost fully converted to the Pro. Plus the backlight time can be adjusted, the auto off timer can be adjusted, the meter can be calibrated, it can be converted to dotless (range expansion) and frequency can be added to it. Other things are possible, but the modded one I have used was not fully modded.

Alligator clips suck.

Alegator clips are awesome!

Have not done it to mine yet, want to have a backup Uni-T. I like it better than my other meters for light work. I intend to enable frequency, ac and dc milliamps and set the back light to always on and set the off delay to 1 hour. I will also calibrate it at the same time…

Just to get it out there… you do need to de-gausse the clamp from time to time as it will make the amp readings more stable. The hall effect sensors build up magnetism from the current flowing through them.

We mod everything around here, I assumed it was common knowledge.

Thank you for the tip about this knife. I ordered without paying much attention at all to the details of it.
I received mine yesterday, it is much bigger and more robust than I expected.
Looks great and well built. Fit and finish are spot on. Time will tell if the “Stainless Steel” blade will hold an edge.
A ZT it is not, but well worth $11 if it does even halfway holds an edge.

Thank you. I ordered the 210E, I think it will fill my needs as I am somewhat new to this flashlight thing and trying to learn by reading a lot. And asking questions when need be of course.
I am finding BLF a friendly place with very helpful people.
As far as the 210E goes, if in the future (after I become more learned) I decide to upgrade it; I will most likely give my buddy who is an electronics guru the info you kindly provided and have him do the work.
Thank you again.

2000 counts = the display can show up to 1999
6000 counts = the display can show up to 5999

That can translate into significantly greater accuracy for the 6000 count meter, if you are taking measurements with several decimal places in them. Example: measuring voltage of batteries. If you are using a multimeter to measure DC voltage of batteries, and your batteries are Li-ion cells (around four volts), the 6000 count meter will give you greater accuracy than the 2000 count meter, because the 6000 count meter can show more digits to the right of the decimal point in the measurements.
