Description

Readings are displayed clearly on a large, backlit LCD screen for quick convenience. The Data Hold mode keeps the current measurement on the display so the reading doesn’t disappear right away. A removable rubber jacket around the multimeter keeps it durable and safe, and also offers minor drop protection. When you need both hands for a task, hang the multimeter by its hook clip to keep it nearby. 2 built-in ceramic fuse tubes make the multimeter secure and reliable. Overload protection is active on all ranges. The non-contact voltage (NCV) mode allows you to safely check for hot/live wires without touching the wires. Conveniently check temperatures by using the included temperature probe and 2 test leads. Count on a professional digital multimeter to assist in all your electric and mechanical work. 1.DC Voltage:60mV/600mV/6V/60V/600V/1000V±(0.5%+2) 2.AC Voltage:6V/60V/600V/750V±(0.8%+5) 3.DC Current:60μA/600μA/6000μA/60mA/600mA/6A/10A±(2.0%+5) 4.AC Current:60μA/600μA/6000μA/60mA/600mA/6A/10A±(3.0%+5) 5.Resistance:600Ω/6KΩ/60KΩ/600MΩ/60MΩ±(0.8%+3) 6.Capacitance:6nF/60nF/600nF/6uF/60uF/600uF/6mF/60mF±10% 7.Frequency:9.999Hz~9.999MHz 8.Temperature:-40~1000℃/-40~1832℉ 9.Continuity, Diode Measurement

abunda_amazon_reviews I've been in the business using meters for 40+ years, and have been very skeptical of the cheap "knock-offs". I've seen tons of them come and go. Etekcity has done a nice job on this one though. While I don't expect it to last as long as my Fluke 87, or 77, I've been using it for a few months now, and this meter that has stayed living on my bench. I didn't expect that to happen. I was going to just get it just for a "loaner" meter when someone needed to borrow one, or to take it where there was maybe a higher risk of it "walking away". I checked it versus NIST traceable standards, and it met the claimed accuracy right out of the box on all functions.. A little bulky, but a good bench working meter, with the right functions and ranges. The continuity beeper is not as lightning fast as a Fluke 87, but it is respectably quick, so you can scan a connector very quickly yet. Overall, way better than I expected, and a big step up from most cheap meters. Quick and stable readings for the most part. I would recommend it to a friend with no reservations.

While this test meter appears generally good, the temperature function is not. The first meter I ordered arrived with a broken probe. One of the wires at the probe tip was not making connection (solder joint failed). That meter went back and I ordered a replacement. The temperature function on the new one works but gives incorrect readings. It gives values about 15º F low. I'm not sending the new one back. If you want to send me a new probe that is correctly calibrated, fine. Otherwise, I will live with it. (And tell anyone interested what happened.)

Review Update!!! It was a great meter....until
UPDATE: Was working well -but make sure that you dont blow a fuse. There is a lot of punishment in that result. If you can find the Fast Blowing Ceramic Fuses - you will pay more than 60% of a new meters price. Hard to Find - and ETEKCITY does not support the replacement sale of these parts. Said - oops sorry - next time dont touch the probes there lol. Spend the money - Get real quality meter - with repair support and replacement parts if needed. FLUKE has our business again. We fell for all of the reviews - and rolled the dice. Buy - knowing you might have to toss it in the can. Great meter for the price. It is solid and good quality components. It may not be up to taking punishment like my “Fluke’s” - but a real nice bench tester for any case. Buy with confidence.

Lots of features, good manual, works right out of the box
The dial set up is straight forward and is easy to understand - it keeps the settings for DC and AC volt measurements separate; the manual is easy to understand; I like the optional auto-ranging feature; I like that it measures voltage, amps, & resistance in both AC and DC currents.; I really like that it can operate on easy to find AAA batteries. I have used this only to check my car battery, and the results were the same as the measurements from my battery tester; repeated on another car, with same result. So far I am confident that I can get accurate results. I like the big easy to read LED screen. This unit seems solidly constructed and comes in a nice protective jacket. Seems a good tool for a newbie such as me, but I have nothing else to compare it to. I am happy with this multimeter and can easily recommend it to others just starting out in electronics. Only time will tell how durable it is, and that is why I'm not giving it 5 stars right now.
