    Pros: Works, not sure if it is that precise (my days of dissembling and hard tuning are gone), but it seems pretty accurate. Cons: Short test end cable, but you should expect some compromise when you buy a portable meter; so it isn't a con itself, only an advice. Suggestion: It could be a lot better if it had some kind of fixing band or other handle ... Read more

    Very good multimeter to carry on a car toolbox. Cheap Easy to use, because is autorange The case is closed, so don't gets dirty or scratches when not in use.

    Uses easy to find cheap AAA batteries. I like that the test leads are stored inside, and the cover closes easily to keep the leads in and protect the device. The cover can be flipped all the way back. It seems to test accurately. The cover doesn't work to prop up the device like the pictures seem to indicate. I got this because I wanted a small multimeter ... Read more

    Compact and easy to use. The material quality is really good. Im owning this product over a year now with no problems. The original battery is still in perfect condition thanks to the auto off function. The probes are not making good contact sometimes. I used sandpaper to clean them. The autorange is slow in some conditions but you can go to manual ... Read more

    cheap well built for price compact automatically finds an appropriate range Has a handy range cheat sheet placed in the top lid when you flip it open. Makes "overloaded" beeping noise when trying to measure current from a 1.5V AA NiMH Battery. It can measure that battery's voltage though. Summarised Specs for potential buyers from the cheat ...

    Auto-range setting removes the need for multiple settings if testing different products one after another. The built-in storage area for the probes are very useful as you won't misplace the probes! The wirings for the probes seems flimsy, I would have to try to be careful not to break the wire when removing and storing the probes. The wiring is also ... Read more
