I just read the review on the digital calipers and while I think very highly of them myself, the ones I use the most are these analog calipers. No batteries and sufficiently accurate for what I'm doing. Not as easy to read as a digital, but again, I've never picked one of these up and found the batteries were dead or dying. Cold weather doesn't seem to have an effect on them. They are well made, and if something happens to them, I don't shed all that many tears. I still remember the day I knocked my Starrett calipers off the bench and knocked them out of kilter. Actually these seem to handle such things better than the Starrett. They get me to where I want to go and do it with minimal cost and pretty much zero maintenance.

I have about 5 of these, they all work well and are accurate enough for hobby work.

A really good buy on-sale, with a coupon. I think I paid $15 for it. It is simple to use for three common tasks.

1) Test the voltage on a battery. It does this fine. Charge the battery first, connect the leads, you see the voltage.

2) Load test a fully charged battery to determine if it is holding power after a simulated 'start' with a 100 Amp, 10 second draw on the battery. I had a friend with a Subaru with a battery that kept losing charge. We charged it up, then load tested it. After the test, the battery showed in the green zone so we knew the problem wasn't the battery.

3) This device also tests alternators. With the Subaru running, the device showed only battery voltage, 12.4V. With a functioning alternator, it should show 13.5-14V. Thus, we knew the alternator was the problem. To be thorough, I checked continuity between the B+ terminal on the alternator and the positive post on the battery (disconnect the negative post first or your meter is toast). Since I had continuity, I knew the alternator was bad. A quick trip to the salvage yard, and $20 later, my friend had a working alternator and was back on the road. She was happy.

This thing works fine. Pick it up on-sale.
