a good cheap product

"i brought this to replace an old faulty meter. it has, so far, coped with all tasks. i haven't had any problems with the leads, but the heavy duty ones from my previous meter will work as replacements."

Very Poor Test Leads
25 Apr 2012
By JayM
, Merseyside
"I bought this as a cheap metre to leave in my toolbox. I didn't expect brilliant quality for the money but the metre itself is good. Does as it should and has a backlight which is a nice feature.
However, the test leads that came with it are of abysmal quality. I have only used it a handful of times since I bought it about 6 months ago and the leads have already separated from the terminals. At first the insulation broke to expose the copper wiring, then the Black lead seperated from it's terminal completely where it plugs into the metre.
Buy the metre, but source your leads from else where!

Poor leads
1 Jun 2014
By DaveinRoss
, Ross-on-Wye
"The product is great but the leads let it down, especially the black. The fitting has broken where the lead joins it. Both ends no less. It almost as if too high a temperature has been used when moulding the wire into the plastic fittings. As a result it is brittle and the wire has broken off. Poor quality control."

Junk

"Unpacked the meter, fitted battery and attempted to insert test leads, red lead fits without a problem but it wasn't possible to fit common lead in meter, unusable!
Not sure how the meter managed to get its QC passed sticker!
Will be buying another meter from elsewhere and returning this one, at great inconvenience.

"what a waste of money, test leads are rubbish does NOT give accurate test results. the only good thing about this is it fits nicely in the BIN."
