  • Good meter, but I wish I could read Chinese

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

    Pros:

    The leads store in the case and the cover protects the display when closed.  I found the accuracy to be better than the previous reviewer.  The auto off function will help with battery longevity and the use of common AAA batteries is a plus.

    Cons:

    The instructions are in Chinese, which is ok since I know how to use a multimeter.  HOWEVER, there looks to be an addendum to the manual included along with a spare resistor... I have no clue what I'm supposed to do with this resistor (field modify the meter???)

    OtherThoughts:

    Hopefully someone who can read Chinese can shed some light on what the included spare resistor is for.

    Bottomline:

    This is a nice pocket multimeter to keep handy.
