I kinda like owning a Micron gauge because it looks so cool..

Just kidding.. If I was an installer with years of experience,
and knew the hardware I was installing was unlikely to fail,
(because everything I had installed before, was still working fine),
I might skip spending money on an expensive piece of test gear.

I have twice sold overly expensive oscilloscopes, (got them for cheap money),
because 99% of my test requirements can be handled by a basic 100 MHz scope..
Plus, it's a lot smaller and lighter..

I was wondering about those larger inverter caps. How to they fare in cold weather?
