A real Mulitester – 2.6" LCD Current/Voltage/Capacitance/Resistance/Temperature/Frequency Digital Multimeter (1*6F22) Reviews

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

Pros:
- can measure voltage, current, resistance, capacitance, hFE, frequency and temperature
- includes sturdy looking multitester test leads and a temperature probe
- has sockets for transistors and capacitors
- large, easy to read LCD display
- operates off a common 9v battery (included)
- includes a silicon protective backing
- has overload and low battery indication
- datahold switch
- good price for a lot of features
Cons:
- does not include an English language manual
- does not have backlighting
- test lead resistance seems to be relatively high (the tester reads 0.5 ohms at the 0-200 ohm range)
- quite large and bulky
- does not include a carrying case or strap
Other:
This multitester is capable of a lot of measurements but is quite large. It would be inconvenient to carry around so I would recommend this for bench use. Unfortunately there is that issue with the test lead resistance that doesn't allow one to make accurate measurements of low value resitances at 0~200ohm range. You'd have to do a zero test (shorting the test leads before measurements) then deducting the result from measured values. Then again this is just a general purpose multitester. You'd need a bench type laboratory tester for that kind of accuracy. The temperature measurement capability compensates for this drawback. Overall a good multitester.
Bottomline:
I would recommend this to friends.
