10 reviews for Amprobe 5XP-A AC/DC Compact Digital Multimeter with VolTect™

  1. bluwizz

    My favorite, most used meter!

    I bought this when it was still Meter Man. It is so convenient.
    Non contact voltage sensing is very handy. The readout is large so I can always see it. The magnetic strap on the bask is great for working in panels and just magnetically attach the meter to the panel cover to free up both hands, That is a big convenience feature, very handy.

    What else can I say, I use this meter 95% of the time, The other one used is my Fluke clamp on.

    ✔ Yes, I recommend this product.

  2. mday8

    Works great in all modes. Use it almost every day. It is very durable. Its held up in extreame conditions.

    ✔ Yes, I recommend this product.

  3. Jayaces

    Excellent Price vs. Performance

    Very accurate and easy to use. One hand voltage measurements came in handy. It might be the last multimeter I’ll ever need.

    ✔ Yes, I recommend this product.

  4. HandyRandy

    Great features in compact design

    Being a technician, I use different tools and must carry them in my tool bag. With the various features and compact size of this multimeter, I don’t have to carry as many testing devices and it is extremely durable

    ✔ Yes, I recommend this product.

  5. johndukes


    This is the second one that I have bought. The first one I took home to replace an older style analog multimeter that had passed its prime.

    ✔ Yes, I recommend this product.

  6. Ben1

    Good for tool box.

    Nice cheap meter.
    It would be better
    if it had a icon to
    let me know when
    the battery is low.
    The N.C.V. tester
    is OK.

    ✔ Yes, I recommend this product.

  7. Dan1950

    Very functional tester

    Easy to use with great features.
    1. Stand
    2. Magnet with strap makes testing safe and efficient

    ✔ Yes, I recommend this product.

  8. Dieseltechy

    Good allround unit

    I am a mobile mechanic and this multimeter is great for my work, it handles everything I need to do. I have had quite a few meters over the years but this one with its magnetic strap is perfectly suited to my job. I have had it for a little while but seems to be rugged enough to last me a long time.

    ✔ Yes, I recommend this product.

  9. ClintM

    OK Meter

    It’s a nice meter and has a few functions that I do like about it but I can’t releally recommend this meter to those who are using it all the time. It is not as rugged as other brands, and the lack of auto-ranging is annoying. One thing I do like is it is easy to flip the meter so that the face is against the rubber holder, protecting the face of the meter.

    It’s in my tool box and will be used regularly. It’s a company tool and not my personal tool. Time will tell if it will standup to the abuse my others have withstood for almost 30 years.

    ✔ Yes, I recommend this product.

  10. Telmanri

    a great and easy to use multi-meter with minor issue

    This multimeter is a perfect tool to use. In our company we have 3 of these and these are the first electronic test equipment that every engineer uses. these are simple and easy to use. we have them on our bench all the time. the only problem that we have with them is that they are not auto off capable. so if you leave them on, they will deplete the battery and changing the battery is not that easy. other than that there is no issue with these tools.

    ✔ Yes, I recommend this product.
