    I have an Agilent multimeter which has an inbuilt display of the temperature of the device.

    It is currently sitting in a plastic bag outside. I am waiting for it to read -10C which is the lower limit of the operating temperature range.

    When I get home, I'll try the same thing with the upper limit :-D

    No need to wait until you get home to test the upper limit! America has ovens in almost every kitchen: wood-fired, coal-fired, gas-fired, electrically heated, and for outdoor kitchens, solar-heated. Give it a go while you are here.:cool:

    I was thinking about that by I couldn't squeeze myself in the oven with the meter.

    At the high temperature limit I don't think you want to be in the oven... but commercial bakeries are available with large walk-in, crawl-out ovens you might be able to rent some time on.:rolleyes:

    The high temperature limit is just a warm summer's day. It's only 50C (operating).

    Oh. Well, never mind then. Hmmm 50C is halfway between freezing and the boiling point of water, right? As you said, "just a warm summer day.":D

    Are you recovered from the jet lag yet? Are you visiting and poking through your stash? Does it fill a standard shipping container towed about from sea port to destination with a tractor-trailer rig? Or are you shipping via air freight? Just curious in case I decide to order a boatload of Chinese stuff.

    I think I'm pretty much over the jet lag. And yes I'm still going through boxes trying to rationalize the packing.

    The idea is a container on at truck to a ship then half way around the world before the reverse trick happens. Apparently its pretty cheap from China - or cheaper anyway - I have a few acquaintances who get stuff in bulk from China. The cost of the transit pales into insignificance against the value of materials you can fit into a container (unless you're filling it up with a huge shipment of bubble wrap).

    Containers are huge. I might fill up 5 feet at the end of one if I was lucky. However it's going with a substantial part of a house load of furniture, and there is probably no need to fill it from top to bottom.
