Portable Free Unit Converter
Designed as the portable version of Free Unit Converter, this small-sized piece of software helps you convert measurement units when it comes to mass and weight, distance and length, mass flow rate, pressure and stress, speed, power, and so on. It features intuitive options that can be figured out by anyone.
As there is no installation involved, you can save the executable file in any part of the hard disk and just click it to run.
There is also the option to save Free Unit Converter to a USB flash drive or similar device, in order to run it on any PC effortlessly and without previous installers.
An important factor worth taking into consideration is that the tool does not modify Windows registry settings or create extra files on the HDD, leaving it clean after removal.
Clear-cut interface and options
The GUI is formed from a regular window with a plain and simple layout, where you can select a category and pick the source and output measurement unit. All you have to do is input the numerical value and check out the converted results in real time. Extended information is provided on the right side of the panel, and its format may be scientific, fixed or automatic.
Unfortunately, the utility does not implement options for copying data to the Clipboard, saving it to file or printing it. However, it is possible to make a text selection and copy it by using the global hotkey or via the right-click menu.
Evaluation and conclusion
We have not come across any issues in our tests, since Free Unit Converter did not hang, crash or display error messages. It has a great response time and shows conversion results quickly while remaining light on the system resources. All in all, the app serves its purpose and can be easily used by anyone.
