Hi all,

Any recommendations on USB voltage & current testers? I've run into a couple of situations I could have used one (or so I thought).

 

These looked interesting (picture from Bangood). I like the bluetooth connectivity and ability to export data.

Thoughts or options?

 

Cheers!

If you are just looking for the basic voltage/amperage check, you can do a DIY option as well. I doubt it saves you much in terms of money (on sale, those USB testers are pretty cheap), but it's a fun enough project.
