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???

I Bought this pocket sized multi-meter for checking voltage readings
I carried out a simple test to check a standard car's 12v battery charge and then to check the alternator was producing current to the said battery.

Tester worked fine.
simple to follow instructions quick and easy to use

Highly Recommended

I bought this as a replacement for my (larger, older and now failed) existing multimeter.

This one is ideal for home use and is very easy to use. OK, I'm not sure how often I am going to use the temperate probe (other than to test how cold my Gin and Tonic is), but it is there all the same.

The only thing that I miss from my previous multimeter was that, with the older one, the cables wound around the meter and clipped into the back for storage, with this one these are just loose. However, a strong elastic band solved that, so I' still happy to recommend and score as a 5 stars.

Other reviews have not compared it to similar devices . Here is what I found . Car battery check was .5 volts above my Gunson unit. Temperature check in room is 4 degrees above two other devices, 22 as compared to 17.6 and 17.8.
I have not used any of the other features but based on these two tests I would say if you want accuracy spend more money. I am beginning to loose faith in Amazon quality in electronic products as this is the second crap product I have purchased in the last two months (Auto scanner). If Amazon is paying the return postage I think I will be returning this unit.

Good product at an excellent price. My first impression was that it looked fragile and smaller than I'd imagined but the yellow insulation protects it well. Ideal for a mobile technician like myself. I've used it a lot already and it's performance has been spot on. Recommended.

I used this multimeter to test my alternator and car battery. It indicated a short in the car battery and a replacement was supplied. Also proved the alternator was working fine.

Great tool for anyone who is looking to test all types of circuits domestic, vehicular or otherwise. The backlight is very useful if a little short (about 3 seconds). Thermometer works very well and accurately. Screen size is perfect and device is extremely portable, 9v battery is supplied.

This has all the usual voltage, current and resistance facilities you are likely to need with all the normal ranges. Obviously you should take great care with the higher voltages, so the upper scales are beyond anything I want to touch. As an nice extra it can also measure temperature using one of the supplied probes. I haven't had too much time to experiment with this but it can be used as a room thermometer. The scale also lights up and is quite clear. The case and general construction look fairly robust, able to take a few knocks.

Does what it days on the tin. Works well so far. Not expensive and clear to read. I have used it a little and it works well

This device does everything I expected of a multimeter for general use around the home, car, and garden. It is pretty robust and well protected against dampness (though I doubt it's waterproof) and it has a stand on the back which makes it easier to read at times when lying flat on its back would be awkward. It is a little complicated and the instructions are far from clear at times. For example, the instructions simply say "Put in the battery." but don't tell you how or where; I struggled for ages until I discovered that the entire plastic outer cover has to be removed to reveal the battery compartment cover. But once that was done I have no complaints; it's a great little device and good value for money.

I bought this to replace a digital AVO meter that finally gave up after more than 20 years' use. It might not be in the same league quality-wise but it works just fine and feels easily robust enough for home use. And there's the added bonus of a temperature measure. Excellent value.
