Cheap and Usable – Auto Range Digital Clamp Multimeter Reviews

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 measure 400A or 200A; Useless High current ranges.
While the meter has gages to 400A, NEVER USE THIS ONE for this.
Other:
Manufacturer could make some small changes and the product whould be great. Right now it "surfices" for me.
Bottomline:
Usefull to check how much power your household electric items are taking and save money by shutting them down.
Please do take into account that you can only use this device on one lead (not both) if you want to measure the current.
