    Another vote for the Cooper box. I have been very happy with mine for the past 7 years.

    I have to admit that I feel like I stepped back 15yrs looking at the cooper blue box. I use to have one of those when I started out and I certainly is/was the most reliable and accurate in my opinion. Today I use the fieldpiece digita dual temp. It is fast and seems accurate

    I figured it was Oops
    They are excellent for pipe temps
    One of the best IMO

    There used to be a good reason people joked that UEI stood for Unreliable Electrical Instruments, but supposedly they have improved over the years.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    I have a UEI amp clamp it is one of the best I have had. I had a dual scale thermometer for about 20 years. It died a while ago. I replaced it with the red cooper. Got a good deal on it. Oh I also have the UEI leak detector. I haven't had to use it a lot but I like it better than my tif 1-xz.

    I have a uei dl379 as one of my back up meters, its a good reliable meter with lots of functions and reasonably priced. As for temp measurement I have lots of k type tcouple probes and clamps, a cooper atkins blue box, digicool manifold with dc thermistors and various other temp measuring tools, the cooper atkins is the most accurate and quick acting I have temp/humidity meter I have ever used. It has a permanent home in my truck next to my Bacharach h10

    UEi has upped their game as you say, Ice. I got the DT304 with four inputs. Uses K-couples.

    Thee Cooper would be great to have, but for me it takes up too much space. I have so much new electronic gear from FP and Testo I don't have the room in the truck.

    Everything is in padded pistol cases and briefcases, there is room for nothing else.

    “I am for doing good to the poor, but...I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. I observed...that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”
    ― Benjamin Franklin
