Pen Type Multifunction Multimeter
Compact pocket size multimeter measures AC/DC volts, resistance, capacitance and provides diode test. Convenient "pen-style" allows the unit to be carried easily in a shirt pocket or toolbox. Included SMD probe allows quick one hand measurements of resistors, capacitors and diodes, even when mounted to a PC board. Simply unplug the probe and insert the included test leads and the unit is ready to measure AC/DC volts.

    • "Voltage probes don't always make contact" by mrognstad on 4/8/2014

      Plugging in the voltage test leads switches the meter to volts, but the leads don't always make contact with the recessed banana jacks. At first I thought the meter was defective, but it worked fine in testing SMD parts with the tweezer tips. Push the voltage leads in hard to make contact, then they're okay.

      Excellent tweezer probed device for troubleshooting tiny smd circuit board components. Only thing I would like to see changed would be the regular wire probed tips could to be changed to a smaller and insulated needle sharp type. EF Johnson used to sell this type of needle sharp probes of which I have a set. Don't know if they still sell them but they are awsume. Caught this as a deal on MCM's pre Christmas sale and the price was greatly reduced, so I purchased. Glad I did because it really fits the bill when working on everyday modern circuits.

      Quality:

      It is useful, however the tweezer points are too stiff and as such the spacing cannot be easily adjusted for other than certain size SMD parts. I also have a set of "Smart Tweezers" and they are better but cost many times more.
