Default $2.99 DMM over at HarborFreight

Just wanted to let everyone Harbor Freight has a pretty affordable DMM. It's 2.99, plus a $6 "Handeling and processing" fee (why don't they just call it more free money fee??)

Plus a pretty small shipping fee, but they sell so much cool stuff I bought a helping hands thing, and some nuts and bolts in a bin (the nuts and bolts cause there always handy, and the bin got converted into a resistor bin )

Anyways its not the best DMM by any means, nor will it replace my Fluke, but its a nice quick-and-dirty DMM when you just need to know something is going the way you expect it to.

Heres the accuracies posted in the onwners manual

DC Voltage

200mV - 200V +-0.5%
200V - 1000V +-0.8%

DC Current

0.1uA - 2A +-1%
2A - 10A +-3%

AC Voltage

100mV - 750V +-1.2% [45Hz-450Hz]

Resistance

0.01-200K +-0.8%
200K - 2000K -+1%


Anyways just spreading the word for those who don't have a DMM yet or are looking for a spare

***Your results may vary, void in Ohio, may not be suitable for children under 3, get your parents permission before calling****


The CD is for size comparision.
