I think it would be more like $17.50 to $20 shipped; you can put it in the cart and set a shipping address and see 3 different shipping options.... No commitment to buy...

It might be a little less shipping; I'll have someone weigh it exactly tomorrow...

Stuff like 1 or 2 Arduinos only weigh 50 grams or so each....

That is a good deal. Little light on the frequency counting... but it has features mine does not. I have the UT60E and am happy with it. It cost me $600NM as I recall (600 Pesos)

I use the Frequency counter a lot more than I thought I would have...

The transistor and diode checking capacity is nice. The ability to read capacitors is good.

They are sold in many countries under many brand names.

Unless you are filthy rich it is always a trade-off.

How's $5 sound?

Looks to have Freq measurement also, see the square wave choice on the dial.

Sounds good!  I'll try to find one like this I can sell for $5.  Shipping is the kicker.  OK if you're buying other stuff too. But this one (I have a couple personally like this) is lighter than the one I sell, (140 grams compared  to 350) so it could go cheap HongKongExpress  :)

What I really want to find is a much more excellent multimeter for maybe $40 or so...

The one I use is EXTECH brand, model EX330.
Was $35-40, very nive meter.

That and a USB scope, I use www.dpscope.com, all you need for debugging arduino circuits.
