Multimeter w/ NCV Tester Is a Handy and Accurate Measuring Tool to Have in Your Toolbox
When it is important to have the right information, it is best to get it yourself using the Craftsman multimeter w/ NCV tester. This accurate tester uses a large, easy-to-read LCD digital display and measures AC/DC voltage, current, resistance, capacitance, temperature and frequency. It is compact sized, affordable and uses Type K temperature measurements.
The Multimeter w/ NCV tester also includes a Non-Contact Voltage (NCV) detector and a convenient flashlight. It has an auto power off feature and runs on two AAA batteries. It comes fully equipped with a probe and test leads. A handy carrying/storage case is included. The maximum voltage is 600 volts and the unit weighs less than a pound. The meter, of course, comes with the Craftsman guarantee.

Good meter for price. I got it on sale. They fixed the listing to say it does not come with a battery, but that is not the only listing flaw. I purchased one fully expecting to get a case included as the listing said at the time of purchase it includes a "handy carry case". To be clear NO CASE IS INCLUDED. If this is important you will need to buy a separate case. I like the case to keep the manual and leads with the meter. Especially a meter like this that comes with a 2nd temperature lead.
The meter has lots of ranges including capacitance and temperature both in F and C. It also uses two AA batteries which is nice because they are readily available. Too bad it didn't come with them but that is no big deal. The meter switch, housing and probes are definitely not up to Fluke's level but at this price that is understandable. The meter should last well in light use. The meter is made by Extech for Sears. You should test the NCV on a live circuit but one is not always available. It has a small flashlight built in and that at least lets you verify that the batteries are good before using it to test for hazardous voltages. Like the meter it uses two AA batteries, not included.
I am very impressed with this low-cost meter that offers so many testing features, some of which are normally only found in very expensive meters. I was trying to figure out why an outdoor AC unit's compressor suddenly stopped working, which often is caused by the failure of one of the capacitors. With this meter I was able to quickly identify a dead motor-start capacitor which showed no sign of physical damage. Other features are also quite handy.

Bought this to keep in the RV so I could leave my other Craftsman multimeter in the garage, the one I took to Europe and spilled Picon into when they dropped my bag on the ramp. Still worked fine but a little sticky! If this new one last half as long as the first, at this price it's a steal. All these meters have the same chip set inside, not much difference, only the name is changed.
This was a great tester with all the features needed to complete my home renovation projects. The NCV tester was especially helpful while dealing with unknown wires in the walls.

the DMM looks like it's constructed of a grippy rubber surface but it's all really lightweight cheap plastic with a flimsy stand. The switch feels decent, not anything like a brand name tester but more along the lines of a ************** purchase. The tester works pretty good, just a solid tone though and not an oscillating tone such as other brands. The light on the tester is handy too, but the construction of the battery case and how it is attached has me doubting the durability and longevity of this item.
