This gadget is very accurate and very sensitive
I bought this because of the stellar reviews. Used it for the first time today and after less than 10 measurements the reading never went back to 0. Royal Bummer right in the middle of watering. I must test the ph of every watering batch and runnoff ph. luckily I had my old school backup.
It comes with just 1 set of calibration powders so you can only calibrate this thing once before you have to order more calibration sachets.
My original rating was: 1 star for nothing. I give it a solid goose egg, zero, zilch stars.
After Beating it around trying to figure it out I left it alone and picked it up this morning and it worked fine just for 1 reading then it was stuck at that reading no matter what I did. So I figured it out. A couple things upfront
1) It comes calibrated so do not rush to calibrate this for a while no matter what unless you take it apart right from the box.
2) It must be rinsed in fresh water and sometimes dried prior to each measurement. Do not reuse rinsing water.
Do not be swayed, This gadget is very accurate and very sensitive. Even when it is stuck on the last reading,
1) Shut off and Rinse in fresh water after each use,
2) Hold vertical so all water drips out, do not shake.
3) It should go back to 0.00. if not, stand it up right for all liquids to drip from sensor or dry and you should be good to go.
If in doubt of its reading, have a solution of known ph nearby, I use apple cider vinegar ph 2.10.
Keep in mind, the ph of different batches of the same type vinegar will vary slightly so use the same bottle of vinegar as your reference. I found out the ph of wine brands or beers are more consistent from one bottle to the next than vinegar, tap water or even well water.
This gadget might just become my next wonder tool after the needle nose pliers.

This product worked great out of the box, but now I can't calibrate it...! I've tried a dozen times to recalibrate, but no luck... I see where there is a one year warranty, so who do I contact about this...?
Granted, this meter did fail, however, Linda from the Poit store did a great job in contacting me and making sure everything worked out. She gave me a code to get another meter, at no cost whatsoever... So far, the meter has worked fine, but I can't say enough about Linda's customer service... Thank you, Linda... : )

This thing is a must have for any green thumb. I pH my water every time before I water my girls and the only way to do it right and accurate is to have this meter. Comes with calibration materials.

Handy and quick for checking pH
Good meter but you need to mix up the calibration solutions from the packets packed with it and use them from time to time if you want accurate results.

Great while it works
Not working after a couple of months. Now reads zero in all solutions. Great while it works.
AlumiGogo refused return since it was past their return time limit. (Even though it had a year warranty). However, the seller intervened after reading my review and gave me a coupon for a free replacement! Really an accurate meter with great seller support!

Cheap but effective
Works great. A lot of bad reviews, but I've had not one problem. Haven't even had to calibrate it yet.
