Device arrived in a timely manner, by Royal Mail.
Device seems to work well, but have to wait for a new moon to get proper reading for my area.

Gives plausible readings every time. Darkest so far has been 23.05 Mag/arcsec2 in my unlit bedroom. Outdoors I get 15.93 with a streetlight on and 19.55 with it off. It really does need a clear sky on a moonless night to get proper readings, so I'm still waiting for some real results.

Bought the meter to confirm reading taken on an IPhone. Unfortunately the phone was close at 18.57. But intend using it to help pick new area to move house to. Too many years spent in poor Sky area blighted by ever increasing light pollution. The meter is very easy to use, but it is a shame that they do not produce a dual purpose meter capable of being used as a basic meter and also as a fixed system. I feel that it is daft and overly expensive, to have to buy two meters one for each purpose.
