I was browsing wood moisture meters and found the seller chose to show codes on their page (costly mistake or Christmas promotion?). It's 50% off so ends up at 9.98 shipped.

I've used a few Tacklife items, they got the orange/black color scheme with all of their tools. So far I have their Dremel kit and hot glue gun and both are working well, all has 24 months warranty. Their store seems reputable too with the amount of feedbacks.

It comes with a 9V battery, I am buying it and use throughout the winter, backlit screen so hopefully battery lasts a long time. I gotta make sure my wood is dry enough for burning in the fireplace but apparently it's got more serious usage like testing wood after a flood.

Code: SH5UW3P3

Below is manufacturer's text:

▲PRECISE MEASUREMENT WITH CALIBRATOR - If the calibrating value is 18% ± 1%, the tester is in normal condition and displays correct measured reading; If not, calculate the difference between the adjustment value and 18% with the formula: measurement reading- (adjustment value - 18% ), providing you with more accurate measuring data

▲WIDE APPLICATION - Wood 5 ~ 42% Accuracy: ± 2% for readings ≦28%, ± 5% for readings >28%, Resolution: 1%; Suitable for measuring the moisture content of wood whose thickness is less than 20mm, You can select different range according to the wood species you want to test

▲VERSATILE FEATURES - Backlight LCD Display provides visibility in dark areas, let you read clearly and quickly; Low power indication; Auto power-off after about 30 seconds when in non-use

▲IMPROVED DESIGN - The probes should be inserted at least 4mm~5mm into wood for an accurate read-out; Fashionable appearance and compact body offers you a good feeling of grip

▲PACKAGE CONTENTS - Tacklife MWM02 Classic Wood Moisture Meter; 9V Battery; Package Box; User Manual; Warranty Card; 24 Months Warranty

Tried code another type of
tacklife meter and didn't work.

Starting to have concerns about meter because one of the Q&A's said good for only 20mm thickness.

I know you should split a piece of dried firewood first, and check on the fresh split side...

does the tool need to be warm prior to testing for moisture? Is there another version of this tool that'll determine hardness of wood, or maybe, simultaneously, conduct both readings? Which then, the first question still remains regarding warmth...?

If you believe spending $10 on a wood moisture meter is a good deal, I have a bridge to sell you Smilie

If you want a wood moisture meter, do a little research. A decent one is in the $25-30 range and the $$ go up from there.

A $10 meter is little more than crap.

Seriously thought this was a stun gun.

I wonder how accurate it is compared to Wagner...I heard these pins aren't as accurate because you're taking stab at it all over the wood versus something like Wanger that doesn't require pins (minus the $400 price tag).

I have some rough hickory waiting to be planed and sanded Smilie

Think I'm returning mine...

Doesn't seem that good for firewood.

Instructions say only good for moisture level of less than inch.
