For the tech that has it all, now on Banggood, listen to your favorite music while taking measurements!

Oh, and it's an alarm clock also.

I doubt that I could sneak that past Mrs GreyWoolfe.

If you feel the need for a singing dancing multimeter, the "Aneng Official Store" (no idea if that is accurate) on Aliexpress has them cheap

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000343031770.html

Time display I can understand perhaps since it's logging (I think) so might be handy, radio.... scratching my head at that one.

Interestingly it's 18650 battery powered.

Why don't you spend the extra $20 and upgrade to the Aneng AN-8888S, with heated carbohydrate preparation function?

Actually, It seems to be a pretty decent meter for the price, .05% accuracy on all DC ranges.

You can get just the meter for a lot less:

Bluetooth for music but not my voltage readings? It's too bad, all that hardware wasted.

For me half the reason to get a bench one is to avoid the battery powered thing letting you down, its kinda nice to have it on the mains and just works (tm).

Actually, I think it probably doesn't have logging at all I was going by the fact it said "Data retention    √" but since there is clearly no BT for anything except the audio play back sillyness my guess is that they just mean it has a Hold button! 

Also has a silly inverse LCD like was on that meter Dave reviewed a while back and had terrible battery life.

What a strange meter, I can't imagine why they would even think of designing such a thing.

All Chinese specifications at minimum are worse by 2 in reality.

So you can listen to AmpHour or eevblog when you are in your lab.  Not every phone has good speakers.

I'd assume you can power it indefinitely through the USB port used for charging the 18650s.

I think it's kind of neat. I could see it in a compact lab where you don't have a lot of space.

The features a tech really needs in a novelty meter, is a non nag female voice or patient cruisey guy (selectable) with a GPS vibe guiding you along with suggestions
and pending BANG! heads up   :o

and a warning beeper when a cheapass suss 'n deadly ThreeHungLow product is near the lab or repair bench,
so the appropriate PPE gear can be worn rather than loose BO enhanced singlet, shorts, and flip flops   


Put me down for two of these meters if/when they are available   :-+

Come on, it wasn't that cryptic mate  ;D  (I think.. :o )

A talking meter with a 'suspect MIC product' sensor

Talking meters aren't new btw, I have a Tandy/Radio Shack DMM kicking around somewhere..  :-//
worked great for a short while till the flimsy stranded 'press to talk' probe cable died. 
hmm, will have to get on to that, it was great getting the readings 'read out' without looking at the meter  :clap:

Please allow me to translate from stream-of-consciousness to formal English.  ;)

For an electronic engineer, the two most useful functions of a "novelty" multimeter are:
  • A synthesised voice which, in the patient style of a satellite navigation device, provides suggestions and warnings about impending mistakes the user may be making
  • A proximity detector sensitive to cheap gizmos from AliExpress which, upon detecting such device, sounds a warning tone reminding the user to don appropriate personal protective equipment
If and when such a multimeter becomes available, I shall buy two of them.

For now, we'll have to listen to AC/DC High Voltage on this multimeter...
Not that it has any Cat. rating and likely a danger connected to a charger while making measurements...
