A pretty basic cheap mulitimeter, clearly the same cheap one sold at several other places. Gets posted on here at various prices from various retailers but first time I have seen it under £3. Don't…

I've had one of these for years and it works fine on both 12vdc and 240vac although the wires did come out of the electrodes some years back but a bit of insulation tape fixed that. Just remember to switch it off after you use it otherwise the 9v battery inside will be dead the next time you use it.
Really Einstein it was a joke but I agree with you the higher the volts= more danger which I think was the basis of my analogy. :{

Deathtrap with wires? Nice.
Seriously - Car batteries, domestic batteries and fuses only guys. Dont go mains testing with these, its not worth risking your life for a few quid.
Really... Mains "can" be a lot safer than a Car Battery!
Well I decided to test your theory, I cut the wire on my car phone charger and touched the wires on either side of my tongue- it tingled a little bit!
I then cut the wire on my Mains hairdryer and did the same- it tingled considerably more and I am now en route to Worcester A&E. I can't remember a lot about it but I must have eaten some fried bacon for breakfast because I have an everlasting taste of it in my mouth. :{
if you're going to make a stupid analogy at least make them comparable. a phone charger converts your 12vdc high current car battery to 5vdc low current. in any case its a moot point as its the current that kills you and with enough volts it can as little as milliamps.
Good to see Tandy back. I've ffond memories of mooching around their shop as a lad. Dreaming of owning that TRS-80.
Still using my Tandy solar powered calculator

Hi HotUKdeals people, I used to work with the original Tandy in the 1970's and 80's. As far as I can tell there is nothing dodgy about http://tandyonline.co.uk I placed an order for over £40 just over a month ago and it all arrived safely within a couple of days, in good order and much of it was better quality at lower prices than "that other place".

@ frogman: I know it has always been the done thing to knock the TRS-80, even the computer mags used to do it viciously. We have to wonder if that was related to Tandy UK very rarely buying Ad space in those mags? I used to send the weekly TRS-80 sales numbers over to HQ in Texas, and I can assure you it was a very, very popular piece of kit. It started many people on a career in IT, me included. As a techie I must say that it was technically the best of the "big 3" at the time, due mostly to the faster more efficient Z-80 processor chip used. Later models introduced TRS-Xenix (a Unix by MS of all people!) Anyway I'm waffling on now, I hope it was at least slightly interesting.

Happy deal hunting!
Companies House shows:

TANDY CORPORATION LTD
29 GLEBLANDS
HEADINGTON
OXFORD
OX3 7EN
Company No. 04457730

But stupidly Tandy's site says "Company Number 4557730" which is missing a 4. It's all quite legitimate

Guys, Tandy's website has an incorrect company number on it, it's actually 04457730

Do a search at Companies House and it'll show the correct details, which used to be ADSL Nation.

My Companies House link above stopped working.
Strange Companies House address listed as registered address and contact address, a private semi detached house in Oxford, perhaps they just drop ship?
