Mooshimeters back in stock at Amazon

Hi Reader, I’m happy to announce that Mooshimeters are back in stock at Amazon. The core product is unchanged but the tool case, test leads, clamps and leads are all improved versions.

New Documentation, New CM and More

Hi Reader, Some updates from the last few weeks: Regulatory Updates Our European distributor, Elektor, was contacted by German authorities who found some problems with the documentation being supplied with the Mooshimeter.  Specifically, they said not enough safety information was distributed on paper with the device itself.  We’re working to correct this and the next manufacturing […]
