    Great value as I purchased it with a great sale price. Have not used the clamp on ammeter but at least tried AC volts and ohmmeter. Operated fine with easy to understand operation.

    Auto Ranging, clamp on AC Current, diode test. One handed (thumb) function control. Great value, compares to Fluke costing $100+. Hopefully, it holds up to years of use.
