    a colleague picked one up , on his first use . it resolved an issue with an undersized return on a 4 ton rtu , instant resolution of a troubled job , cut in an extra return , inexpensive neat tool ,

    has anyone tested with a REAL anemoter, also can you enter size of box/dimension/etc? iv'e seen it to, if it compares to my anemoter my tool supply wont take up entire truck, guys I LOVE tools, and most importantly ,take the time and learn to use every function, every little bit of know how it offers I expel from tool, id love someone to take a test and post results and do you have to wave it past grill up and down as mine takes several measurements and equates a common cfm or whatever im after? Somebody HAS to have both, lets go, do some testing for us........THANKYOU

    I'd be interested to see it up against a traditional style. It's probably pretty acurate I would assume

    I have both. I have a regular uei and the AAB plug in. If I get over this flu this weekend, I will test them against each other. I have been using it for like a month or two. It is very convenient and makes me check airflow more since it's right in my tool bag. You can enter dimensions, rectangular or round, and if a register or grill is in place. So far it seems to work well. It's auto saves each test, and also does a average cfm of a 30 second test. So far I really like it. I will try to test the two this weekend.
