This versatile, easy-to-use digital multimeter is a great choice for homeowners or office maintenance staff. Use it to check for voltage in receptacles, extension cords, light fixtures, batteries, and other electrical circuits. Or check fuses, light bulbs, and continuity of electrical connections. You can even use it to verify the voltage level of automotive batteries and troubleshoot electrical problems in cars. With its user-friendly digital multimeter features like autoranging and a CAT III safety rating, the AM-500 will save time and increase measurement confidence.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Ergonomics, easy to use. Bought about one week ago. Does what it says on the tin. Only minor comment is that the probes supplied, while very safe, are great for use on eg PC boards with easy access to contacts but not long or fine enough to probe into some sockets or some hard to reach points. This problem was simply solved by buying another set of probes which also accept changeable insulated crocodile clips, spade terminals and fine probes. However, the multimeter was a good choice.

What facilities does this meter have to explain the higher price compared with the apparently similar A48WB model?
