None of those are TUV/GS certified though, this is an excellent price for a safe multimeter you can use on home 240v as its certified to 300volt
They also don't come with 3 year warranty's either

No, no it's not - this has proper mains rated fuses and has passed safety checks, not to mention a 3 year warranty. The one you linked to is £8.98 and has no fuse protection! I know which one I'd rather use for testing high voltages/currents!

Heat added OP!

As an electronics engineer, I was considering this as a backup meter for home. I've already got three but nearly bought it. Looks good for the price / spec / safety ratings.

Anyone know how many counts this has? I'm guessing as well that for this price it does not include NCV detection

How about this one? It's £8.99 delivered, is fused, designed according to IEC −1010 (whatever that means), and supposedly has a 25 year guarantee.

Check if it has automatic shut down before you buy, if not it will cost more in batteries than what it is worth, and often be dead when you want to use it. Also check if it uses expensive 9v batteries or cheap 1.5v. I cannot find any details in the description.
It says 'Not activ battery compatible' in the description, I haven't a clue what that means, but I would guess at not compatible with rechargeable batteries.
I have zoomed in on the image of this one and it does have auto power off, so that should make it a reasonable low priced meter.

I think activ battery is the system their cordless power tools use

It’s looks identical to the red one I have which is from Aldi a couple of years ago. Mine has auto-shut off, so I expect this one will have, pretty sure it’s the same one. It’s a great multimeter.

Yes, I edited my original post after I zoomed in to the picture of the meter and it does say 'Auto power off' on it, just below the On/Off button, so this one shouldn't pose any battery problems.

Hi horseboxguy, can I ask what sort of battery does it take?

If it only comes with 1 x battery I would assume it's a 9v.

I wouldn't trust that anywhere near mains AC
Probably be ok for low current DC

That 25 year guarantee though, reckon it was a typo, 25 weeks more like

Just looked at mine and it’s a Powerfix one, so must have been Lidl, but it is identical.

Yes, the Ferrex description says "Diode tester and continuity with acoustic signals", I think most digital multimeters have that facility.

I agree, that one is a very cheap version, it looks like the type with no auto cut off that eats batteries if you forget to turn it off manually, (and you will). The 25 year guarantee refers to the underfloor heating, not the multimeter.
thefinest125/08/2020 14:33

The Ferrex one definitely does, if you enlarge the image and look carefully, the speaker icon can be seen at the bottom of the Ohm's scale, just below the 200 ohm setting.
thanks

There are no fuses in it - if you going to probe up to 10A you are going to want a fuse. However it looks like the price has dropped to £3.99. Not for me personally, but an attractive price for a cheap battery tester or low power hobby use!
Also testing is a condition of the 25 year warranty for the under floor heating (they could have phrased it better)
I can tell you now no-one would bother testing that meter as proper testing would destroy it, also it would cost more to test it than a (several) replacement unit(s)!

I did look at the downloadable specification sheet and that refers to fuses, or at least one fuse. Shame I ordered it the day before this deal was posted as I would have preferred the Aldi one... subject to availability.

I guess it's only as safe as the voltage you work on! Personally I wouldn't use it for anything mains related...
I could do with a multireader.
Any good???

Anyway of getting free delivery without spending £30?

Also will this be selling in stores?
Get the yellow one different product cost £5
Got one for myself and another for a mate. Haven't used yet, but if my past Aldi product experiences go, it can't be bad. Heat added! Thank you OP
Got mine today. Seems like cheap build quality but does the job so far!
TUV ID 1419060022 certificate

I suspect this is the TUV certificate for the meter. This is for the German version sold earlier this year. Do the numbers match?
Are these sold in store anyone???? Need to pop down to my local 1
Edited by: "ruheluddin86" 30th Aug
can this be used to measure CCA?
Lidl have a meter occasionally with a clamp on current meter. Worth keeping an eye out for one.
I don't have one myself.
