[volt-nuts] Crazy price

I don't think the asking price ia particularly excessive, although I 
paid nowhere near that for mine a number of years ago. I got a quote for 
calibration recently from Fluke. $1056 for traceable cal with data, 
$1407 for accredited cal. That is provided the unit is received with 
battery backup still keeping the references up to temperature. 
Unfortunately the batteries (PS-618) are unobtanium and replacements are 
a different physical size so some mods are necessary. Then it becomes a 
matter of justifying the cost of the cal for hobby use...
