  • great budget meter

    I bought one of these about 20 years ago - the battery has been changed several times the 0.5A fuse more than once, but it still goes strong. My biggest criticism is that there is no auto-off feature, I have lost track of the number of times I have left it switched on by mistake and come back to a flat battery. PP3 are not the cheapest to replace either!

  • A great mid range meter. Pity you cant safely change the battery...

    Device worked ideally in all of its modes and provides exactly what is required for my electronic competence working almost solely with DC equipment. The biggest nuisance is that, when the device 9V battery runs out you have to completely disassemble the device in order to get at it. After the battery was replaced the reassembly became a nightmare. Upon refitting at least one surface mount capacitor was dislodged and the device no longer works. Whether this is poor solder contact or a break due to something being out of place on refitting it should not require a full electronics suite of equipment to replace a battery...

  • The item arrived on time, it has done all that I have asked it to do so far, and although it will probably be years before I try everything it is capable of I will not worry too much about the rest. A very reasonable cost to boot.

  • The product seems good but I feel that the instructions need to be fuller as terms are used without indicating the symbol that is used for them on the meter itself. In places more detail of how to use the various features would be useful, especially those not found on many more basic multimeters. No doublt, for a professional user of all the features would present no problems. I chose this meter as many digital multimeters do not have AC current capabilities, unlike my old analogue one that has finally 'given up the ghost'.

  • B.W.Moore. said:

    For this to function as a ''Counter'', what type of input is required ? i.e. Simple switch mechanism, or voltage ( Pos or Neg going . ) etc.,

    for frequency counting it needs the positive leading edge of the voltage waveform
