    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Small and compact, O.K. for everyday use (pocket size). Cheap. Accurate. I have two multimeters: this one and large and heavy PRO. But I use this unit more often, because of its compact size. It works fine for me more than one year just now.

    Cons:

    Build quality is weak (inside the unit, plastic case is good enough for me). At the very first time it don't measure current (mAmps), and when I disassemble it — there are a discontinuity at PC board. It seams that QC don't test this for current. After 10 seconds with soldering iron — everything is O.K.

    OtherThoughts:

    In whole it's fine, but QC may be better. The current measures have small amount (max 200mA) — short circuit current of one good Ni-Mh AA battery is up to 8A (so, You'll be unable to measure it).

    Bottomline:

    I'm quite satisfied with it. If You have some soldering skills for possible repairs — this is Yours choice! :)
