SparkFun’s Digital multimeter’s basic concern was with the continuity of a really loud sound, bright flashy colors, and it’s used in measuring DC and AC voltage, DC current, resistance and also, testing diodes.
However, with this product, we’ve made some changes; these changes are more natural, and calmer. We chose a neutral grey color instead.
The fact that it doesn’t auto-power itself, can’t auto-range itself, and will not measure frequency still doesn’t mean that it’s a useless product, because although it doesn’t do all that, it still has lots of interesting features, and don’t forget that you will be getting it for a much lower price than the actual expensive type of multimeter. This version right here ladies and gentlemen can measure DC voltage from 200mV to 600V, AC Voltage from 200V and 600V, DC current between 200uA and 10A, and resistance from 0 to 20M Ohm! And believe it or not, we’ve actually tried to test how long the battery’s life would last and the results were astonishing, more than 170 hours (7 days) before the 9V (included) gave out.
