Hot.

Thanks OP just went out and purchased one. There was only two left in my local store, so I think they are going to go quick. Heat added from me.

Works like a laser pointer.

Any one know the distance the beam will reach , i currently have a 30 metre devise or 100ft for the Dumb ass reading and need a new one , Not great in bright sun light thou

I have Stanley ultrasonic distance meter sold by Lidl a few years ago. It is ok but I would prefer a laser one because then I would be able to tell exactly where the distance is being measured to. You can use it to get a quick idea of a room size but smaller things are difficult to get accurate measurements from.

16 metres. Picked one up today and its going straight back. It has a laser for pointing at location, but I tested in the kitchen at a wall, measured ok, moved to a different point and completely mis measured. Thought the beam width might be an issue, hitting door frame for example, but manual says its 5cm wide at full distance. Too flaky for me.

Good one

Measures how long it takes for the sound wave to bounce off the wall and return.
