Question. What is your favorite moisture meter and why? Which ones the best?

Harbor Freight sells one for $7.00, It's worked fine for my purposes.

Agreed. I've got an HF CenTek meter that a bought at the same time as a more expensive ExoTech 4+ years ago. I threw the ExoTech in the trash last year and the CenTek still works fine. Both meters gave equivalent readings.

I have a newer TakLife, more expensive than the CenTak, but it doesn't work any better.

The only thing I don't like about the CenTek is that it requires some weird button batteries instead of a standard AA or AAA. I had to hunt around to find them.
