TACKLIFE DC01 Digital Caliper

Today I’ll be writing about the TACKLIFE DC01 Digital Caliper. This affordable measuring tool is something you never knew you needed, until you realise after all that you can’t be without it.

You can easily switch between both inches and millimetre measurements, internal, external and depth measurement. The clear LCD screen is easy to read.

You also get a 0.2mm ± accuracy tolerance too, so it’s highly accurate, especially for the price bracket of around a tenner.

But is this any good? Time to test it out!

You’ll need to put in the CR2032 3V battery into the battery compartment, replacement batteries are available from most outlets, including Amazon. Flashing of the LCD digits indicate a low battery level.

I’ve been doing things old school with a tape measure, from now on I’ll be using this caliper for all future reviews, I’m so impressed. The clear LCD screen makes it so easy to measure a multitude of items.

You can zero the screen and get a negative measurement too and it comes with a 120 second time out too, saving the battery.

You get a measurement range of 0-150mm/0-6″, so very handy for everyday use.
