Compact, accurate and reasonably priced – 1.8" LCD Digital Auto Range Pen Type Multimeter (2*AAA) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
A compact, and very useful little multimeter: Small enough to negotiate cramped spaces, and with enough range capacity for most hobby / domestic applications.
Cons:
A display backlight would have been a nice feature (but this slight disadvantage is offset by the display hold capability). The Probe retract mechanism was initially a bit notchy, fixed easily with contact cleaner. Maybe a slightly higher amperage range would have been nice (but this is far from a disadvantage)
Other:
Durable carrying case, and the retract probe facility makes this easy on the pockets. Good measurements ranges, nice clear display (wide viewing angle), and "easy to use" controls / buttons.
Bottomline:
For the price another DX good buy. Accuracy's slightly out (final decimal place a bit jittery) but as a quick check, "look see" instrument this is just fine. REALLY Pocket-sized and seems very good on the bateries so far!
