What are you going to buy to calibrate that unit... and so on and so on...

What is it you're wanting it for? Just checking your own meter?

If it's for your own meter, just use a socket in your house, make notes of results, an look for discrepancies.

Yes and no... Might be better if you say what it is as I had to search the item.

I bought a Kewtech (ashamed to admit to owning something of theirs) to use years ago. Similar to the Megger check box. However there's no reason you couldn't use a cal-card etc at a fraction of the cost. However if you want a new toy buy one :)

If checking one or two test meters then use a calcard and dedicated RCD socket.

I've had one for a while, has proved useful. Depends on how many meters you run and how they are looked after. If been kicked around on building sites, may be an idea. If you do decide to purchase one, little advice do not keep in van. As travelling about and temp differences can effect them, after all when being calibrated they are adjusted by small pots on circuit board which can move with vibration / temp differences. Leave in office / home and check your meter against it every 1 to 3 months or so, depending on how much you use your meters. If you do decide to get one get in touch with @LeeBakerMegger on twitter, he will let you know who's doing best deal in your area.
