      Not so useless....

      Overall: 3 out of 5

      Glyman3, you don't have to have an explicit 400mv range on you meter, It just has to be able to read out with mV resolution. On the 40A range the unit outs out 10mV per measured amp, on the 400A scale it puts out 1mV/A. Most likely your meter is 3+1/2 digit, so it can read out 1.999 volts = 1999 mV. This is in the manual, which you can download here.

      Useless unless your meter has 400 or 600 mV range

      Overall: 1 out of 5

      The item description says "Use almost any DMM ..." BUT be warned that it requires a multimeter set to 400 or 600 mV range and I can't even find one to buy that has that low an AC range. The lowest AC range on my meter is 2 v so I have to return it and eat the return shipping cost and 20% restocking fee because I did not read the manual before I bought it and trusted the description instead. Always read the manual before you buy something from MCM.
