    Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Wires aro not so good quality, instructions are really basic you need general electric knowledge to understand what this tool c...

    Great tool for non professionals

    posted by dunkiper on 03/13/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - It's a great tool to check the Amperage of an AC circuit. It's the main usage. - With its 3 range of amperage you can do it with small amperage circuits to the big ones, until 400A - Also useful for mesuring voltage and resistance
    Cons:
    - It's poor quality made. plastic. - the clamp it's not so wide so it's difficult sometimes to clamp correctly on a wire too bi...

    Seems well worth the price

    posted by findlaypc on 11/21/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's a very simple meter, and can measure current with either the included probes or with the attached clamp. It appears to be sufficiently accurate for my purposes.
    Cons:
    Does feel cheap, but then just about all handheld digital meters feel cheap (including Fluke and Wavetek) if they don't have a ...

    Solid and cheap

    posted by ioKKon on 06/15/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nicely made and seems to be strong enough. also quite ergonomic. Feels as tough as meters costing 10x as much. I liked it so much I bought a set of leads that cost me more than this meter, to replace the cheap leads that come with it.
    Cons:
    No DC current measure.

    Cheap and Usable

    posted by Reddog33 on 01/18/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very good price. Dropped it a few times and it's still in one piece. It uses 2 low cost AA batteries, which are easyier to replace than the 9 volt ones (that you usualy find in these things).
    Cons:
    Realy insensitive. At best it have 0.1A precision so it cant read measure low currents. Since most people wont use it to measur...

    Cool

    posted by nicgravel on 09/11/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This device is smaller that what I expected (good things :-p ). Very easy to use, the display is enough big and easy to read. The clamp look to be a good one, not so cheap.
    Cons:
    The leads are very cheap, but who care about the lead on a clamp multimeter ;-)

    Nice toy.

    posted by Digix on 03/13/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Very good price. Only clamp transformer addon costs more. It uses 2 low cost batteries instead of expensive 9v ones. That also should make them last much longer. Nicely made and seems to be strong enough. also quite ergonomic.
    Cons:
    Cant measure low currents. At best it have 0.1A precision. That is not good for most cases. Useless High current ranges, since ...

    Good solid meter

    posted by mike99 on 02/24/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Feels as tough as meters costing 10x as much. I liked it so much I bought a set of leads that cost me more than this meter, to replace the cheap leads that come with it. I've compared accuracy against a meter costing more than 10x as much.
    Cons:
    Included leads are cheap. Had to use a knife to modify plugs of new professonial set.
