  1. Jeeze! An omega.com pH meter for $35.
    Or $22 for the meter, $16 for the probe.
    Noticed by Roy O. at UW CES.

    Now why do these cost $60, or $80 ?

    Chem joke:

    At a recent public lecture I saw a "Science show."

    A chemist demonstrated the dangers of toxic zinc vapor.

    Needless to say, the audience was galvanized.

  2. A pH meter is not much more than a 7106 voltmeter chip/LCD display and
    the probe. You could probably make them for $5 if the market was big
    enough.

    If your device passes a current through the media that is being
    tested and the current is measured, then that is what you have
    weather the cost is $5 or $5k.

    Is that what you imagine a pH meter does?
