MSRP is $150. But to be honest you can typically find it anywhere from $110 - $135 depending on things like free shipping, minimum order amount, etc.

Is there any way to make the wrench remember the last target torque setting after it turns back on?

No. When you turn back on, you will have to re-enter the target torque value. However, this should only take a few seconds to do.

Does it require any sort of periodic calibration?

In regards to re-calibration - all torque wrenches need to be re-calibrated at some point in time. The only exception to this is the traditional Beam Style Wrenches - since you can see if the pointer is still at zero (and if it is not, you can just bend it back into position). The biggest issue with most torque wrenches (the "click" style) is that if you forget to turn the torque wrench down to its lowest setting after use, the spring will deform -and the wrench loses accuracy. This is the single biggest reason why torque wrenches become out of calibration. Our digital wrench is actually based on the traditional beam technology - so there is no need to turn the wrench down after use - and it holds its calibration very well.

However, it will at some point still need to be re-calibrated. How often is a tricky thing - since it depends on your needs / uses. Obviously, a person who is using their wrench to assemble aircraft engines will want it re-calibrated more often than someone who is using it to tighten lug-nuts on their car every few months. In general, we would recommend having it re-calibrated after 3K uses.

We recalibrate the wrenches in Chicago.

Let me know if this helps.
