The description states it requires a battery but the ones I got instore had a battery included, so I am glad I resisted buying a battery despite the sale assistants insistance it needed one.

I am guessing this is not a great multimeter, but I just wanted it to test my car battery (although I do not understand the max 10amp business) and if I figure out how to use it properly to try diagnose an intermittent headlight problem I have on my car.

Most people will not want 2 multimeters, but if you know of someone else who'll want one, or who will appreciate it as a present, it may be a good buy.


2 for six squid is about the right price for these, they do what that are supposed to do and you really cant grumble at that price. I keep a maplin like these in the car all the time just in case and another in the home so the kids can check thier batteries. They have no auto off so if you forget to turn the dial to off after use you will need a new battery next time you use it.

The 10amp function wont be very much use as you need to put the meter in series with the load to measure it in Amps and if the load is more than 10Amps the meter gets fried, so not worth the risk unless you really know that load is less than 10amps ;-)

I have one of these, great for working on the car.

My Fluke doesn't have an audible bleep on the continuity check. Anyone know if this does. Great for buzzing out Christmas tree bulbs etc.

I have one of these - cost me £2.99 from maplin some time ago

Though why anyone would want 2 beats me!

No audible alarm on continuity test.

These are great for the price, they are really slow to stabilise though.

Lidl have these fairly regularly for £2.99.

Don't expect any great accuracy and certainly don't use it for testing the mains!

Great for testing batteries etc though.
