@Wnderer: For $99 you can get a Mooshimeter for your cell phone.

OK, I have to admit that scores pretty highly on the "Ooh, Shiny!" meter LOL

@mhrackin: The quality may be much better now...

When they arive, I'll perform a few tests using known voltages and resistances to se how closely they corrolate with each other and with higher-end units.

Downside to cheap DMMs

The quality may be much better now, but a few years back I bought what looked like a cheap Chinese knock-off of a Fluke with some nice added functions.  However, it was very poorly calibrated and had a bunch of interacting pot adjustments that made it  a major chore to calibrate properly.   Not being very patient, I used it uncalibrated with mental correction of readings until about a year ago when I spent the time to recal it.

@Elizabeth: ...so height and width are a bit larger than the Jacar one but it's thinner...

We will have to compare notes about things like "look and feel" when they arrive...

That is rather tasty -- but it's $36 from Amazon, which seems a bit steep considering the price tag of the JayCar offering...

Why don't you get one and let us know which is better value? (I am happy to spend your money!).

Seriously though I would like to know how well the Jaycar ones perform. We have had subcontractors who used non-name brand meters only to find that they stopped working at inopportune times and then called us in to try and debug why the product didn't work. Plugged in a Fluke and the measurement was fine.

The Tenma multimeter is

110 x 58.2 x 10.8mm

so height and width are a bit larger than the Jacar one but it's thinner and was in stock at Newark so I could order it when I ordered the Duratool kits...
