Woah! Nice toy. Err, tool. Prices have come down on the things a bunch 
it appears. Thought I was doing well to score a Fluke meter and IR 
thermometer. Still trolling ebay for a Tek' scope.

My Fluke 62 IR showed some being 1 to 3 deg F above others. GFCIs in 
mine pull 1 to 3 watts even with nothing plugged in. Two were more like 
7 or 8 deg and I replaced them.
