• Ideal multimeter for general purpose use including household electrics
• Measures AC/DC voltage, resistance and DC current so you can test common items
• Low battery indication so you know when to change your batteries
• Perfect for beginners and experts alike

What is this multimeter able to do?
This multimeter has a variety of functions. As a standard multimeter you are able to test for voltage in mains sockets by using the AC functions, and in power supplies by using the DC functions. You are able to test bulbs and fuses by using the continuity tester. For the more technical user, you are also able to test transistors and diodes.

How easy is this tester to use?
This tester is simple and easy to use. Once you have inserted the batteries, plug in the colour coded test leads and turn the dial to what you are wanting to test. The screen will then turn on and you are ready to test your items. The ease of use makes the multimeter usable for beginners and experts alike.

How safe is this multimeter to use with electrics?
The multimeter has fuse inputs to 200mA and to 10mA. It ensures that the fuse will blow before any damage is done. The supplied test leads are insulated to 1000V which means that even with using the multimeter with mains electric you will always be kept safe from electrocution.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from beware no replacement fuses if they blow Bought 3 days ago for my son. He blew the fuses in it within an hour ( his own fault) but you just canot get spare fuses anywhere for this meter. Maplin don't stock them and neither does any other UK company. They're very short 600V quickblow fuses. We now faced with having to buy a whole new meter instead of 2 cheap fuses. My advice, buy a different meter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good value This meter has all the features needed for occasional domestic use and is good value at that level. The build quality is not up to professional meters, however these cost upwards of £100. So, fit for purpose at a very good price all round. Would be improved if a continuity buzzer was added.

Asked by: tony2905
The product instructions provided on the listing under the DOWNLOADS tab (or by clicking the link below) https://maplindownloads.s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/n20ax-3788.pdf Page 7 Section 7. DIODE AND CONTINUITY TEST Explains exactly how to do this. If you are in any way unsure about the correct operational use of a multi tester device then it would be prudent to consult with a qualified electrician for advice.

OK, you say it can be used to check batteries. The manual supplied does not mention batteries - except the internal ones No mention of which of the 19 dial positions are to be used, or what range of display numbers indicate the charge state of the test

Asked by: JFM_IOM
This does have a Battery test function as stated in the user manual. Under section 9.

Will this tell me the state of any of my batteries, in a digital readout and not by a colored line

You could use this to test the voltage output from a range of battery types, which will be displayed on the digital readout.
