I've got several handheld meters here. One is 24 years old.


I've got 3 Fluke 8060As of that age. I far prefer them to my Agilent U1251A. Unfortunately they are beginning to show their age. They have turned yellow and the on/off switch is going. I have had to replace (and void the calibration) the fklying battery connector on each one.
