Not for every day use – Multimeter Test Leads (92cm / Red + Black Leads) Reviews

posted by matelec on 07/15/2011 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Do every thing that you need for intermittent home use. Would last a long time if you only use occasionally like once a month.
Cons:
If used in a semi professional way the lead insulation soon breaks at the probe leaving exposed wire. This could be dangerous if working with mains voltage. I use my meter several times a week and it did not take long for the lead insulation to break at the back of the probe
Other:
Great for a quick replacement and as a spare set, but if you are working with them daily they do not last long before the insulation on the wire lead breaks up.
Bottomline:
If you only use your meter occasionally they buy them. If you use your meter regularly they won't last long.
