Competant Multi Meter.
on 3 March 2013
Before I start - I am not a professional & don't intend to use this for many of the tasks it's designed for. In fact, it's to replace an old analogue analyser I've had for years, which has now retired.
I've had this unit for several weeks now & have tested it for several jobs, including: finding the best place for a solar panel to give the most current, battery testing (Volts & Amps), testing LED's, & some continuity tests for cabling. It has helped confirm polarity as I wired an extension cable to my solar battery charger, amongst many other tasks. It has excelled in the jobs I've asked it to do & even prevented me from ruining my motorbike battery.
If this is the first time you've used one of these digital versions with all the range options on, it can get a bit daunting. But, don't be too disheartened or 'put-off' by the complex look of the multi-meter. The instructions are fairly basic, but get you started. Also, there are some very good you tube clips to help you with the more advanced stuff - just type in "Multi Meter Tutorials" into your favorite search engine.
For the price compared with the testing options, this is a really good first digital multi meter. The temperature reading option is an added bonus to the unit & makes it even more value for money.
I highly recommend this multi meter for novices & those on a smaller budget. Why pay more???
