Good Value Small Size – Auto Range Digital Multimeter Reviews

posted by tspoon on 08/19/2008 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
This is a good value meter. I am an industrial electrician and use this meter at work. It is not suitable for 3 phase measurements on a 230/400v system, but does everything else well. Takes aaa batterys not button size - an advantage for me.
Cons:
The leads soon gave up under heavy use, so I soldered some good quality ones I had spare.
Other:
A good choice for a small meter to do the hard work while you leave the good meter for the precision stuff. The mA range is great for instrumentation fault finding
Bottomline:
Fits in a small space and works well.
