  • I must have gotten a bad product

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    -It is a cheap multimeter.
    -Very portable
    -It probably works but I got a bad product
    -Could be educational for kids

    Cons:

    -Build quality is horrible on the one I got. Even the plastic bottom is crooked and swivels (a lot!) when put on a flat surface.
    -The dial (wheel) on the side does nothing at all, probably broken
    -I bought it to measure battery charge, it doesn't work... the panel is not precise enough for voltage and when metering milliamps it shoots to the max, even on spent batteries.

    OtherThoughts:

    I don't believe this could ever be good to measure anything as the needle is prone to gravity and simply everything is too tiny to make any useful reading.
    Also the needle is relatively high up from the meter and the position of your head dictates the reading.

    Bottomline:

    Buy it as a curiosity or a toy, no practical use in my opinion.
