Multimeter?


 Share

Recommended Posts

You know what a multi meter is. tests a connection from point A to point B.

 

What brands/types do you recommend?

 

Please go to menards.com

 

You can see, it ranges from $8 al the way up to $200. I dunno what to choose. You?

 

I don't want the cheapest ######, but I don't need the $200 one either. ~$30-50 budget?

 

@warwagon can you advise?

Adam Savage uses that one, great. :)

You might want to check with him before you take it... Or tell him Kari took it when he comes looking for it back.

Fluke is the golden standard, but they're expensive. I bought one recently from Flir (the company known for thermal imaging), and it works great.  I do pretty high voltage AC and DC testing, so the higher end ones are overkill if you're doing simple consumer electronics stuff.  Milwaukee Tool has one for about $100, which would also be a safe bet.

Yeah, I'm only using it for computer parts. Computer motherboards, peripherals, etc.

 

That Fluke that Spikey posted above looks like a good pick. It's not at Menards/HomeDepot, but my Mom does have Prime at Amazon.

Oops, I missed that link.  Looks like a solid bet for measuring voltage and continuity checks.  It's not able to measure current flow, so as long as you don't need that, it'll be a good choice.
