    posted by peejan on 02/26/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Easy to use capacity meter. A defective capacitor is quickly discovered. Especialy electrolitic capacitors with low a temperature range (85 degrees Celcius) often give problems because they loose their capacity. Because of the wide measurement range of the ...
    Cons:
    the contacts for measuring low value capacitor are located deep in the measure foot. A capacitor desoldered from a printed circ...

    Another great value!

    posted by clavius on 11/18/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It works. Low price. Several nice features like the nice bright back light and a swing out stand on the back. Has a good wide measurement range and when I compare the readings from this meter to those I get from my commercial digital LCR bridge, they are ve...
    Cons:
    Build quality is OK, but not super-great. Not surprising given the price, and is a bit better than you might expect for 20 buck...

    Decent stuff

    posted by zhilla on 06/20/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I have a hobby of reccaping dead thrown away motherboards and giving away free to family and friends, or for emergencies at work. Not to spend much, I've de-capped many dead hardware and have a decent collection. With this I can measure if those work - and ...
    Cons:
    None at all. Seems calibrated, consistent, but I don't really care. For me, under 10% variance is OK.

    A great little capacitance meter

    posted by johnnyboy15 on 08/04/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Smaller than I expected. It sits nicely in your hand. It is easy to use. Good to see English instructions. It covers a huge range. You are not likely to be testing any capacitors larger than this meter can handle.
    Cons:
    The instructions say to RECHARGE the capacitor before testing. It should say to DISCHARGE the capacitor. The opposite.
