The most useful tool Adafruit have ever laid Adafruit's hands on.  We thought we'd use them just for electronics but then Adafruit got Adafruit's hands on these calipers and had so much fun Adafruit started measuring everything.

They're indestructible - which is good because Adafruit don't know what we'd do without them - and ultra precise which is super helpful when measuring components or when trying to decide what diameter blueberry you prefer the most.

They have a capacitive sensor instead of a rack and pinion, so they never go out of alignment even if, say, you accidentally drop them (a few times). One button converts the measurement from millimeters to inches which is perfect for measuring components.

Adafruit have used the same pair multiple times daily for 5 years and never replaced the battery. They are very much treasured and Adafruit are very pleased to offer them in the store as The Best Calipers On Earth.

Note: As of February 12th, 2016 these calipers have a slightly different appearance and model number.  They have an improved sensor but are functionally identical.

  • Large and clear LCD readout.
  • The ZERO/ABS key allows the display to be Zero-Set at any slider position along the scale for incremental comparison measurements.
  • The In./mm key instantly converts from Imperial to Metric (or vice versa)
  • Measuring Range Max:6"
  • Accuracy:0.001"
  • Resolution:0.0005"/0.01mm
  • Instrument Accuracy ±:0.001"
  • Lower Scale Measuring Range:0-6"/0-150 mm
  • Expected battery life: 3.5 years

Made in Japan
