Since there was good appreciation for the cheap caulk, but then again its hard to dislike cheap caulk, ya know... here's nother great lowes hunt. Have been watching this along with afew other things for alittle while now waiting for it to drop. Again it all depends on store stock and price. I have seen alot out of stock at 7.50 some in stock at even lower, and even some with full blown retail 35.99 in stock. (guess PA is cheap, other states are retail 47.98) Overall 7.50 seems like the price point, then 14.99. Stock is very sparatic though. If someone would PM me how to do a lowes national stock / price thing, i'd add that.

I am unsure how cabelas even lives with themselves at night trying to sell this as a regular retail of 119.99...crazy

cabelas @ $119.99
[cabelas.com]

Lowes Direct Link (price depends on store and stock)
[lowes.com]

Brickseek [brickseek.com]

best bet is to use brickseek to find stores with stock, cheap prices, then go to lowes.com site and order for pickup Smilie ENJOY. Some stores are allowing parcel shipping at certain prices, the store i bought out at 5.25 now shows 7.50 parcel, another oos store shows 14.99 parcel. Never done it, dont know what that works...

that seems to be the price point where most stores went to. I have seen some stores with insane retail like $47.98 as a starting point with stock too. Just depends on where you live I guess

Thanks, great deal if you can find it locally; highly YMMV and I mean really YMMV.
I found a store that had 1 at 7.50, so entered the order, awaiting the usual "sorry, we can't find this item" call, but who knows?
Two other stores showed stock (1 and 4) but at prices of $25-35.

So anyway it's fun to try .. if I get my "ready for pickup" confirmation at $7.50, I'll be happy with that! If not, oh well, this is what makes it fun.

I second that question. Other than it being SD and I can't resist, why do I want this if I already own a nice multimeter?

Because batteries need to be tested under load, a battery can test good voltage on a multimeter and still be bad

A multimeter measures the resting voltage. A load tester puts a large, known load on the battery and measures the voltage drop under load. If your battery is sulfated, it is common to have "surface charge" where the voltage reads normal under static conditions, but drops when a load is applied.

Based on the size (gauge) of the leads on this unit, I suspected it wasn't just testing voltage.

The instructions state that not only can choose the type of battery, but you can determine it's available cold cranking capacity. With that said, this device must have a mechanism for putting a load (amps) on a battery - something that's not possible with a typical multimeter. You could do it with an amp probe, but I digress.

Here is the manual:

Usage and amperage readings are covered on pages 5-6.
