RRP way up and you are not even getting an autoranging multimeter

Alternative suggestions?

does seem ok for the price but not a particularly good deal. A lot of the product reviews flag up as fake, and too many " professionals " vouching for a brand which isn't well known so not so sure...

Only £16 ish from Aliexpress http://s.aliexpress.com/FvuQFRZz

Complete bull plop RRP, it's never been £79 and isn't probably worth £25 - also I'd be very suspicious that it's 600 or 1000volt Cat3/ 4 or CE rating - it won't be.

It'll probably be fine for basic checks and tests but that usually applies to any multimeter.....but I'd always be wary of testing live mains on a super cheapo no name meter.

I wouldn't buy this.. I have an electronics engineering background... there are better cheap multimeters out there. Agree that autoranging is better. my last similar meter was around £20 quid last year. sorry cannot link an alternative as I'm out and about.
I am looking to buy another meter and expect a lot of features for around 30-40 quid.

@polarbaba : Did you have any success? Is there a good alternative for 30-40quid? I'm now leaning towards a clamp one (with leads for low current probing), and I hate clamp ones, just to get above the 10amp limit most have...(cpc 26quid one doesn't quite have the dream features but it's close in price and does the basics)

No "Big Clive" seal of approval on this one, so probably worth giving it a miss.

I have given in, I paid over the odds for a standard (sorry AvE n Clive probably non-skookum) multimeter, even with a pricematch.

Philex 20A/1000V (model 83003R) with transistor feature and safety covers, mainly cos it was available next to work(yess electrics) and I walked in and took a picture to lookup then bought next day for 21+vat.

The body is a two piece shell with plastic stand/hook and feels nicely strong and sh*t at the same time. Leads are nice, could also replace as standard (narrow) banana plugs. The safety feature relates to locking off the red lead positions according to feature/current.
Says on back:CE
IEC 1010-1 1000V CAT.III.
POLLUTION DEGREE 2

wtf?


Would recommend at the 15quid ebay price, even at the 26 I paid, but probably better for 30quid.
