Draper Mini Moisture Meter

By Draper Product code: 55818 Pack size: Each

Product Details

The Draper mini moisture meter is a handy tool for detecting damp. Use it on wood, plaster or concrete to check whether moisture is present. Just press the probes to the surface you’re testing and the result will be shown on the LCD screen as a percentage. The meter also displays the ambient temperature in Celsius or Fahrenheit.

It’s battery operated, so you can use it anywhere. If you're working in dimly lit areas, there's a built-in light and a back-lit LCD screen for easy reading. Few things are more frustrating than reaching for a tool and discovering the battery is flat, so the meter also turns itself off after 15 seconds of inactivity to preserve that precious power.

Draper Mini Moisture Meter is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 213.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value damp testing I read other reviews before trying this product and was almost put off. However in use it proved to be a great little device. I tested it on the wall of our cob house and it measured the damp content easily with noticable changes when moving from damp to dry areas as I expected. It is small and as I bought it to check a motorhome this was a bonus. The screen lights up and stays on for enough time to read the moisture and as you press the button regularly when moving from place to place and never went off without me seeing the figures. You can actually see it change as you move away from an obvious damper spot. I would recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs to stay ON for longer Seems to work OK for simple tasks, but the 15 second cutoff does not allow sensible use without a backlight and larger text and symbols.
