I am very excited to introduce to you guys my favorite moisture meter, which is the best I’ve ever searched and used. I had some problems with my firewood storage as well as firewood stored inside. This tool gave me the results and the reason for me to repair my home’s wood storage. And it worked very well.
This device is called Brennenstuhl 1298680 Moisture Detector MD. I bought it on Amazon for £ 20.39 + £ 3.55 for Ultra Power Type 9 V Alkaline Batteries.
Most moisture meters are compact and straightforward designed, and this product is no exception. Perhaps the difference of this product is the style; this reminds me of my childhood gaming machine that it is yellow and the main game in it is Tetris.
- The second unique feature is that it has grooves created on 2/3 of the device body, except the screen area and push button. This makes the grip feel solid and comfortable. Besides, the product has yellow and gray colors, extremely outstanding and beautiful. The back of the body, the bottom is the battery case. The product does not give the battery, so you will have to buy an extra 9V battery.
- The third part is the screen, and it is large and clear to see the parameters. Below is a button area, with the manufacturer’s logo and two main buttons: the power button and a lock button for data.
- The last part is the transducer, the product is designed with a lid, so this sensitive part is always protected safely. There are two main probes, short and very sharp.
According to the description of this product, it has a function to determine the moisture content of wood or building material, such as e.g. concrete, brick, screed, plasterboard, wallpaper, etc.
Measurement range of 5 – 50 % for wood, or 1.5 – 33 % for building material.
Display on a large LCD display (in percent, resolution 0.1 %) as well as acoustically (can be deactivated).
Practical “hold” function also makes measurement possible at locations difficult to access.
Automatic switch-off approx. 3 mins, after last application.
Battery low voltage display.
I tried examining it with the walls around the firewood room. And I found part of the reason for this room. Besides, I also checked on my firewood after drying and the result was exactly what I wanted, it was not enough to dry the wood completely. It is these things that make it difficult for me to burn wood when using the stove. And it was great, thanks to this product that I solved this problem.
The most recent use with this product was that I corrected around my chimney and I needed to check if the leak was resolved entirely. The results made me very pleased. This moisture meter helped me a lot in this repair, from wood to stone, brick. Very convenient and versatile. Overall this is a decent moisture detector and has done the job that I needed it for.
- Quite compact and easy to grip
- Two good strong prongs for detection
- Audible sound when moisture increases
- Has settings for wood and brick
- Large display
- Has a “hold” function so that you can lock the display to get a reading
- LCD display means you can’t read the figures at certain angles
- Doesn’t come with battery included
This is the best moisture meter I have ever used. I highly recommend this product. It is an essential item in your family. Let’s purchase it once.
