Cheap Multi Meter part 2

Yeah, I bought another one. This one is one of the ones from Harbour freight. It was only $ 3.50. It has one measurement the other one I bought does not have. It has the ability to measure the amps in small batteries.

If you think of it as a glorified battery tester it is a good deal. Most battery testers cost around $5. It can also be used to measure low powered circuts and otherwise be abused in a tool box.

I also found a halfway decent meter at a pawn shop that I put into layaway. It is a KAL 3000 series meter. It looks very nice. No it's not a Fluke but I think it will fit my needs very nicely.

It is an auto ranging meter, definitely built better than the cheap ones I purchased recently. It comes in a nice case with the probes, a temperature sensor and a clip on probe.

I should have it out in a month or so.

I could not find it online anywhere. There is a book for it in the case that comes with the meter.

I can't wait to get it. It should be rather nice compared to the cheap ones.

Please review and take pictures!  Enjoy.

From the pics I'm seeing online, it's a automotive mechanic's tester. It looks like decent quality. Post some pics when you get yours.
