    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    comes with batteries and pouch, with crocodile probe

    non-contact voltage tester works great

    extendable inner probe

    easy to use

    DOES come with a manual

    Cons:

    only 3 digits, not very precise

    you can't just use the pen to measure voltage, you need the other probe

    no backlight

    not small enough to carry in a pocket

    OtherThoughts:

    I bought this item to measure electric panels easily but it's not very handy for me since I still need two probes and since I work at night, no backlight is a big con for me. there are situations i will find this very useful but mostly, it's not cost effective.

    Bottomline:

    this item might be handy in some situations or ease up things a bit, but it's not worth the price. There are better multimeters in DX with better prices.
