    Hmm

    I currently have a inficon d-tek select detector and I love the thing only bad side is it can only be recharged via an adaptor, what is a good sensitive leak detector that only requires say alkalide batteries?

    H10P
    yokogawa or Ge or Bacharach versions,
    rarely have a problem other than short battery life but don't get false positives and plenty of tiny ones.

    checking out a tif now but so far unimpressed-
    those lil red and white bottles of soap with dauber have something in it (alcohol?) that set it off- THATS handy for checking a discharge line DOH!
    Look, just do your job, stay outta my way and we'll get along fine.

    Teach your kids to respect themselves and others with your actions- these little baboons will imitate you like it or not.

    I have the H10 P and it works great 0n R22 but is not very sensitive at all on 410A . Is this normal or is there something wrong with mine?

    I remember Dave, (condensed), once spoke about the rechargeable leak detectors... short bat life was a real pain.

    His arguement was this: as the bat drains, the accuracy of the insturement also falls off.

    So Dave recomends the H10 115 volt.

    A co-worker of mine uses his H10 and powers it sometimes with a motorcycle battery with inverter!
    I was impressed.

    I'm gonna buy one of those "jump start" batter paks with the built in inverter.
    Now THAT will be hard to beat for powering your H10 in the field.

    I agree, that little joker will really sniff out a leak.
    Life is like a jar of jalapenos. What you do today might burn your ass tomorrow.

    Beware with this stuff! I went to locate and repair a small leak, and I spent a whole day soldering up small leaks with this stuff. It is so sensitive.

    h10 rechargable is great for me and my guys. they now have a charger that will let you use it while it charges, got it for 35 bucks. the supplied charger was alot smaller but didn't let you use it while it was charging.
