1x Bluetooth 4.2 LE and USB Theta-Meter e-meter in a 40mm or 50mm solo can
Additionally you can order an extra 40 mm can or a 50 mm can, that allows you to work in dual cans mode for auditing a PC. Then you have two cans of the same size, as in a normal auditing situation. When you connect this can to the meter, the solocan becomes one single can and the additional can becomes another single can and both cans will start to work in duo cans mode.
Cost $50 is per can, for either the 40mm or 50mm size.
Please include the additional items you require when ordering.
We do not include a USB cable with the device. Most users already have such cables and USB charging adaptors with a USB-micro connector. To save costs and weight we do not include any additional leads or adaptors with the package. If you need a USB-micro cable, please request this at the time of ordering.
Cans and leads
The additional can is not included in the bluetooth meter package. If you need the additional can, please do not forget to order the additional can of the size you want, at the time of ordering.
Cans and solocans are coated with a thin layer of 99.999% pure tin. Tin is a soft metal and can be scratched with a fingernail or any hard object. For this reason, marks, scratches, and abrasions may appear on the surface of cans and solocans during manufacturing. The applied coating technologies do not allow to achieve uniform tin coating of cans, therefore, areas of uneven coatings with different thicknesses, color shades and smoothness of the coating are possible on the can surface. Tin oxidizes easily in contact with the sweat of the hands, making the color darker.
