  • Great mutlimeter. Use mine in an industrial setting. (Factory maint) Small enough to fit in large pocket of trousers. First one lasted just short of 5 years. Got a more expensive type which lasted in the factory about 2 weeks. Now back with this. Robust with all the basic functions you'll need. Any negatives, well it's slow on reading, have to wait for about 1-2 secs for display to settle. Also the A-D conv reads slightly high, so 24Dc with read 25, 240ac will read 250. Unless you need high-speed reading with pin-point accuracy I can well recormend this item. Only quibble, no auto-shut off but power drain low seems but 9V batteries are easy to get. Rate 9/10.

    How would you test bulbs with this unit

    Set the unit to measure resitance. If there is no resistance reading there is an open circuit and the bulb is no good.
