• Audible continuity allows you to hear if there is a constant connection
• Requires one 9V battery and two AAA batteries for continuity and resistance testing

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I work on a fleet off motorbikes and found this a very good tool for charge rates and checking feeds + nice and big so can read easy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Briiliant I was hesitant in buying this multimeter as i searched high and low for the largest size available. Arrived within a couple of days and it exceeded all expectations. On some reviews, I read bad comments (You Tube)about fitting the two sets of batteries as they were in close proximity to each other. However on my version, the PP3 is at the top with the 2x AAA`s under another compartment, lower down. Nothing like the reviews I had previously seen - so is this a latest version ? Its a brilliant piece of kit and well worth the money, cant fault it Go and buy one, its a bargain

Rated 5 out of 5 by from brilliant! It is very pleasing to be able to buy an analogue multimeter, and at such a good price. I prefer the visual moving of the needle in some circumstances compared with a digital meter. Ie: a rapid or slow movement of the needle can give extra information. The meter feels solid, and was well packaged. I didn't have any problems with inserting the batteries, as they are in two separate compartments. perhaps the design has changed for the better? The probes are excellent too, with protective end caps. Go and buy one! PS: Very impressed with Maplin click and collect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems ok so far... Bought to replace a meter I've owned for 40 years that just stopped working. Hopefully this will last as long... anyway I've only used it for a bit of continuity testing and to diagnose a dud laptop PSU but it seems to work just fine and it fits the case I ordered at the same time (hey Maplin, you could do a deal when you buy both?) It's a bargain and in real terms much cheaper than the one I bought 40 years ago...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant!! I bought this just over a week ago and it arrived within 3 working days. Tried out the main features (resistance, voltage (ac and dc) and current) and all worked very well. More functions on this than on any I had before.Had no problems inserting batteries - which I think some people said they had!! As a retired BT engineer very,very impressed with this multi-meter. Excellent value for money!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This has replaced a meter bought back in the eighties and the worse for wear. I was delighted to find it on promotion for ?ъ9.99! It does everything plus some added features, that my last meter does (costing around ?ъ25). There are some videos on YouTube which explain the operation of the meter, for those unfamiliar with some of the ranges. I would recommend this product without hesitation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super late analogue multimeter Bought this as a standby multimeter for the workshop. It's superb, large scale and nice sweep of the hand makes it easy to measure values. The ranges are really good, had no problems installing batteries as some reviews stated. Impressed with this meter that I've ordered 2 more, for the van and for a spare. Really good for less than a tenner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful meter This is an excellent meter for the price. Great set of ranges compared to an old analogue VOM. Doesn't have the build quality of an AVO 8 or a Simpson but by todays standards - a nice finish and quality. Far better than studying a digital bar graph for fluctuations in measurements. Overall very pleased - would definitely buy again !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attractive design & simple functions I bought this as a replacement for a model that had lasted 20y. The MT2017 is an attractive robust design with simple to use features & scales. The audible continuity feature is good as are the simple desk tilt mouldings recessed into the rear case. I would recommend this inexpensive product for both home & commercial use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent value This analogue meter is well made and has an easily readable scales and a useful mirror strip to minimise paralax error. The Ohms scale has a very well designed Zeroing control. another very good feature is the useful continuity buzzer often not found on DVM's at twice the price

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Multimeter My trusty old analogue multimeter suddenly died recently. Bought this model as a replacement and it does the job perfectly. Analogue is so much more simpler to use than digital. Not sure of its long term durability, but time will tell. My last one lasted 25 years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bought this recently and i'm very happy with it. All batteries fit very smoothly into their compartments. The full resistance range is great too, 10K: 2K~20M, Midscale is 200K. Capacitance 2,000uF Max. Just lacks an optional case

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value Bought to replace a 50 year old meter that cost about the same in 1967! Does all I want, seems accurate and analogue meters are so much easier to use than the digital. Pity there is no case available

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very good buy this is really good quality for such a cheap product, i'm very pleased with it and wouldn't hesitate to recommend, probably to the home electronics hobbyist like me :o)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Batteries not included Great multimeter, shame it didn't work out of the box! Turned out I had to buy a PP3 and two AAA batteries to fit in it. Not impressed as this pushed the cost up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value multi -meter. Extremely good for the price. Like all cheap multimeters,accuracy is not great, but you can always use a digital meter if high accuracy is essential

What size measurements please

Asked by: jaypen
This listing has both the physical dimensions of the device, and a downloadable copy of the manual for the multi-tester which would provide in detail the full range of features and measurement scales of which the device is capable.
