What can I read on this multimeter?
This multi-function analogue multimeter is capable of reading AC and DC voltage, DC current and resistance, and can also give an visual continuity reading.

Why use an analogue multimeter?
Analogue multimeters are more commonly used where a more precise reading is needed. Whereas a digital multimeter will round up the amount being tested, an analogue multimeter will show you on the scale where the measurement lies. It can also show a fluctuation in the measurement being taken more accurately than a digital multimeter to read.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from cheap and cheerful Very small, limited instructions, confusing scales, tiddly probes, but it works for a one-off or occasional job. Good how the probes store on the side but not possible to swap for other probes/crocodile clips as they are hard-wired in to the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this to replace an exact earlier model accidently dropped. If this one performs as well over 10 years I will be well satisfied. Design has change cosmetically otherwise. The same useful features.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from General Featers Bought this Multi Meter two or three weeks ago for general domestic use. It has met all my expectations. There is one unsatisfactory thing, though not of major importance, in that once the leads are unwound from the body of the meter there is no way they ca be replaced in the same way to be able to park the probes! Can be secured with an elastic band though.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dead on arrival Just wanted a cheap meter to confirm a power supply was faulty; just as well I checked against a battery as the meter didnt move. No continuity/resistance check working, swapped the battery just in case. Going back tomorrow

My Maplin Multimeter is not reading anything at the moment (was working fine yesterday). I have replaced the battery / fuse and this has had no effect. The wires are still in good condition. Is there anything else I can do to fix this issue?

Asked by: ArmB
If the item is under 12 months old I would return it for testing.

What replacement fuse does this Multimeter use (UZ82D)?

Asked by: Matthew
The fuse recommended is a fast 500mA, 250 V fuse. I need one, too. It's amazing that Maplin sell the UZ82D multimeter but say they don't sell a suitable replacement fuse. Shurely shome mistake ! Ed.
