Just don't even bother with anything else, unless you want analog in which case don't bother with anything but Simpson.


Next!
Agree about Fluke. Since this company offers so many models for different uses, some aren't really expensive and quite durable. During my years of aircraft maintenance with electrical systems, Fluke was king.

I'm a fan of Harbor Freight meters. They have a multimeter that's often free with a coupon. They have a clamp on ammeter that's often about $10. I have 2 of the clamp ones. They work. I lost count of the free ones. I used flukes when the company I worked for provided them. I have other better meters but most often a cheap HF meter is close at hand when I need a meter.

At what level?


0.1V on household 120V AC - not significant. 0.1V on 0.6VDC - significant.

Fluke is all you need to know. This isn't rocket science.

You are correct. I was trying it with 120V AC.

I still like my Fluke meter.
