Very good clamp multimeter – 1.3" LCD Clamp Style Digital Multimeter with Pouch (AC/DC 600V/400A Max) Reviews

Pros:
Feels as well built instrument and works well. Capable of measuring very low AC current that many other clamp meters can't measure (1 mA resolution, my units starts to measures currents from 2mA and up). Good size: not too big or too small
Cons:
The measurement leads that came with the meter feel a bit "cheap", might not be safest tools for mains voltage measurements (OK for low voltages). Cannot measure AC current even though you can switch the meter to DC current range (can be misleading...). The specifications promised only AC measurements, so lacks of DC measurement range is not really a con, but I think in AC only meter the DC range for current should be disabled so that you can't get on the screen reading that misleads you to think the meter is measuring DC current.
Other:
If you need a clamp multimeter and need to measure low currents as well, this is the meter to get. This meter can measure AC currents from few mA up to 400A.
Bottomline:
Good clamp meter.
