AC/DC CLAMP ON AMP/VOLT/RESISTANCE/FREQUENCY METER


NeverEasy

Recommended Posts

I got an ad from NewEgg about a meter that was reasonably priced at $29. I bought it to try before putting anything up here.  The price is less than I have found other places.  I demonstrate the DC clamp-on amp function to about everyone I troubleshoot for/with.  The AC clamp-on function is also very useful, too, in an AC environment.  In addition, this meter has a set of leads that let it function the same as any VOM.  It reads frequency, too.   It has a Non-contact Voltage (NCV) function to look for an AC source as well.   It feels like a quality unit.  Good Christmas stocking stuffer.

I have no monetary return from NewEgg.  They just get some of mine.

On edit:  I noticed the sale ends in 13 hours.  That would be about 2 A.M. on 02 Nov.

That is a pretty good price.  I paid considerably more and the dc clamp function is what I use a lot .  For solar and and more the ac/dc clamp meters are very useful.

Over the years I made several purchases from newegg that I was satisfied with. A few weeks ago, I ordered a 3 pack of what looked like quality USB-A to USB-C cable for about $24 delivered. The newegg webpage stated it would be "fulfilled by newegg". I was sent really cheap cables with an included invoice of $5.99 but was still charged the original price of almost $24. I returned the crap cables but instead of an apology, I was "scolded" in poor "Chinglish" for complaining about the "bait & switch" they pulled. I doubt I'll risk my money with newegg again.

I think a lot of retailers are venturing into cheap Chinese junk.  Northern Hydraulics (now Northern Tool) went that way.   I don't trust anything from Harbor Freight if it has an off/on switch.
