"The first one was unfortunately defective but was rapidly remedied with a replacement sent out for next day delivery. It's very easy to use. The leads are sturdy and overall a great product! Every electrician as I should have one as a digital multimeter is ok, but it's good to be able to view readings the old fashion way sometimes."
Look carefully at the picture and the switch to see all the ranges included: more than the specifications suggest. Mine had no mirror scale (not expected on something this small and cheap) but did include a battery.
The scale on mine was not the same as pictured: my needle moves from left to right (conventional) not right to left. The scales were in a different order and there were more of them which was a good point, although it makes the dial rather cluttered and harder to work out.
I liked the battery test features which puts the battery being tested under a small load to give a more realistic reading.
This is a low sensitivity analogue meter (2 kOhms/V meter - top quality would be more like 20 kOhm/V) but adequate for many uses.
Remember you have to connect the leads the right way round - you might be used to the forgiving digital meter which usually works either way and just displays a minus sign if you get it wrong.
I've checked the meter against a known good meter and it's OK. I can't comment on its long term reliability but it looks great so far.
"I have several multimeters but was amazed at the price of this one so i bought it, used it on a few tests and seems to bring back accurate voltage and resistance readings for a basic piece of kit, well worth the money if you just want to test resistance or voltage, however this will only test up to 250ma of current so dont go testing anything with load higher.
To be honest the Supplied leads are worth more than the asking price!
Buy this one if you dont have a multimeter already but want one in your kit for basic testing"
