"The Probe Needs Work!"
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
Great notion! Test batteries in hard-to-get-at, maybe even have to take-the-strings-off places. Even tells you how many hours left on the battery. We're talking "best thing since sliced bread" category.
Ease of Use:
Execution--not so good. I have a
- Taylor T5--couldn't get it to work at all
- Rainsong DR1000--couldn't get it to work at all
- Blackbird Super OM--*see note
- Composite Acoustics X--*see note
*you have to keep putting the probe in at different depths to find a sweet spot where it will give a reading. I even noticed it matters if you give it a little tilt--one angle on the CA X and the battery reads low, another angle and it reads lots of hours left.
Seems to be constructed well enough for what it is. I mean, I wouldn't need it made any sturdier--especially if it would jack the price up considerably.
Don't know. Just emailed them today with my concerns.
Well, if it works on your stuff, it's a 10. If it doesn't, it's a zero.
The Wow Factor:
...but I want it to work more plug-n-play.
I hope they fix it...or that someone else comes out with a similar product that works better.
