YARD SALE: SkyRC Watt Meter
« on: December 04, 2012, 10:22:08 PM »
When I first found these from a supplier in China I thought I struck gold. With its nice compact form factor, ability to measure temperature in addition to all the other measurements and resolution to match the Watt's Up meter ($50+), at only a fraction of the price, I thought there was little risk so I went ahead and order a small lot of them in order to get the wholesale price. How I wish I knew its shortcomings then... Anyway, I don't think they are worth their regular price so here I am "giving them away" in this yard sale!

See Martin's review of the meter here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCd2DDoz38g

If you search on eBay you will find that these normally go for about $26 shipped. And that's the price WITHOUT the temperature probe. I haven't found anyone on eBay selling the temperature probes.

I am offering 4 sets of the following here on this forum to members (I'm offering another 3 sets over at the EEVBlog forum):

1. New in-the-box SkyRC Watt Meter WM010, WITH the temperature probe. Details at http://www.skyrc.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=24&product_id=46 (please watch Martin's video for its issues). I'm selling each set for $9 shipped worldwide. That's basically just the price of the temperature probe (they might be handy for other uses), shipping, PayPal fees, plus some rounding up.

Please post in this thread to claim. PM me your PayPal and shipping address too so I can send Paypal invoice. First come first serve. 4 sets available here.

Here are some pictures of them. The inside shots are taken with my own unit. I removed the gunk on the watch crystal so I could see the chip's number, it is an ATMEGA32A. WARNING to you if you want to crack open your own: the retention clips are rather fragile. I broke 2 of the 5 clips while I opened mine up!

Send all 4 to Martin, I will pay him for them.......... I will use them on my simple Solar charger as input and output measurement, accuracy there is not too critical.

Pleasure doing business with you, now just got to give Martin his Christmas present..... Hope he does not kill himself with his high voltage supply in the interim.
