The leather case is velvet lined in red. The case alone from Triplet is $65 so getting the meter and the case for $42=$15 to ship it was a steal. It shipped as 8lbs. but at least 2 pounds of that was packing material so I am thinking she weights about 5lbs. So once I get around to making up some test leads I will test my transformer. So I know what I have. I need to order some alligator clips I do not own any and really would like something better then the crip on style they sell at my local Rat Shack! I was so excited when the mail lady came today!!!
