From the manual it says the typical range is 6" to 165ft. Good for indoors use. Battery life approx 5 hours. Measuring accuracy typical +/- 1/16". It is smaller then I thought it would be at 4.1" x 1.6" x.9" and .2 pounds.
I like how it works like a tape measure in that it is interactive, you move closer it changes the distance, move farther away and changes it is not just a one push one reading type system.
I paid $39.99 so a minimal sort of investment.
I have some remodeling projects so I thought it would be now or never for getting one of these as I don't see it as going to be useful for general wood working but hey I might find other uses once I get around to using it.
So here are a couple of pictures:
Dusty showed one of these sometime back and one of my sons has one hence my interest in getting one to play with.
