What is the difference between the Mongoose and Ultra-Lite?
Mongoose contains an internal storage system for saving data for further post-processing analysis of all data. Mongoose also allows for up to three channels to be displayed at once for realtime comparison. In addition, Mongoose contains more robust features such as a fully configurable backlit display, audio demodulation and off-the-shelf DeWalt Ni-Cad battery and charger.
