Better than included multimeter leads – Multimeter Test Leads (110cm / Red + Black Leads) Reviews

I bought these to replace the test leads that came included with the meter I purchased here on DX. These ones definitely have more insulation around the wires. They're also longer and have a very sharp tip. The strain relief on the connectors is pretty sturdy.
Some of the plastic molding isn't cast well. Since there's no breaks in the insulation, I'm going to chalk this up as a cosmetic defect. It won't affect performance, but does lower marks on build quality.
The connectors fit firmly into the meter sockets, so they'll hold in place nicely while you work.
They're a suitable replacement for worn out leads, but I don't see the need in recommending anyone replace the included leads in their DX meters (e.g. sku 594). Overall, these are a good backup pair to have around.
