I love using my iPad on sales calls. We can bring up a folder filled with pictures of simular jobs and the customer can scroll through on there own. I still do all the day to day work on my laptop though.
Why do people not respect us as they do other tradesmen? Because every Tom, Dick, and Harry doesn't think he can be a plumber or electrician!

I had been considerring an I pad as well for this year, but I can't figure out the I phone for the most part, LOL.

To test amps, pick up an appliance amp tester. Plug it into your power source, then plug your piece into it, you got it right there on a screen. Push a button and now you have watts as well.

About 25 bucks at ho,e depot or something like that.
