Does the trickNot the most precise tool in the world, but then for the price it does the trick. It switches off automatically, which helps preserve battery. The accuracy is not in the scientific area, but good enough to judge whether a piece of wood is dry enough to work with it or not. Good value for the money, I would recommend this for hobbyists.
