    Great Simple Multimeter

    posted by flyboy284 on 08/18/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Uses easy to find cheap AAA batteries. I like that the test leads are stored inside, and the cover closes easily to keep the leads in and protect the device. The cover can be flipped all the way back. It seems to test accurately.
    Cons:
    The cover doesn't work to prop up the device like the pictures seem to indicate.

    Cheap multimeter that works well.

    posted by kelvinang on 04/29/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Auto-range setting removes the need for multiple settings if testing different products one after another. The built-in storage area for the probes are very useful as you won't misplace the probes!
    Cons:
    The wirings for the probes seems flimsy, I would have to try to be careful not to break the wire when removing and storing the ...

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

    Pros:
    Compact Multimeter, nice to keep it in your backpack. Works good, so far had no problem. Always gona me some battery failing and you have to see if it's the time to throw away.
    Cons:
    Chinese Manual, and hardly to arrange back the cables. Indeed I have sure that any one can easily use that with no trouble.

    Handy

    posted by mikayeo on 12/27/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Space saving. Clear display. Audible beep for continuity check. Reasonable priced. Saves times from switching dial since this unit has the 'auto range' design. Cover flips 360 degrees comfortably when open.
    Cons:
    Some say the dial is a bit wobbly, but if you know it is a bit more delicate then you will also be more careful on how you turn...
