Hi All, BigGrin

I had a multimeter that was about one and a half times the size of a credit card.

It worked well for several years, then recently the battery failed and the LCD screen started showing black pixels in the upper left corner.Crying

The battery was one of the camera type oblong things and a replacement is approx £1.50p for a decent one that would last the test of time.

So dead battery and a screen that was showing signs of failing, I thought it was time to get a replacement.

So went to ebay and for £7.59p inc battery and free p+p found this one .


Search eBay item number:164826891998

It has a stand in the back to aid viewing of the screen and an audible buzzer for continuity testing. (With my failing hearing it is a bit quiet, but still audible)

Pic below.

You just hand the meter to Derek and say something like "Dunno what I'm doing. Can you do it please?"
