Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful multimeter I have owned this multimeter for a few month now. It gets the job done I use it around my house and for small side jobs I recommend this to any general electricians out there do basic home installs. It has plenty of functions. The battery does last a good amount of time for being used very often. Overall great product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dead battery sent Meter sent to me with a dead 9 volt Golite battery ! Waste of my time to go put in an Amazon basic battery that worked fine. First test was to gauge the Golite battery that had almost zero juice. Let's hope the meter works better than the weak battery I received.
