Multimeters for Everyone

Everyone should have a Digital Multimeter. I was lucky enough to have #Metertech send me one for a #ProductReview.

The first thing I noticed out of the box was that it came with a battery already installed. The exterior of the box shows it comes with a battery but nit that it is installed. At one point, before I decided to try to turn it on, I thought the battery had been forgotten.

The instructions included are detailed but assume a level of base knowldge that an average person might not have. When explaining what items I could test with this multimeter it was assumed I knew which category a battery fell under. You can see my unbixing and initial testing below.

The multimeter works well and I like how secure the connections to the testing probes are, but I would have liked a cover for ezch probe. A case that could keep the probes and the multimeter together would have been a nice addition.

This is something I would recommend to someone who had a base knowledge of electricity and multimetrs, not a novice who only wants to test batteries to see if they still work.

As always I received this product at a discount or free in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.
