I tried the voltage from my home powersuply, which should be 120 voltage, but this thing gives about 180v, tried a 1.5v battery, it reads about 2.0v. What a waste of time, get to return it.
This product is reliable, dependable, and well-made. It does not feel cheap at all. Great price from Sears, and I know I can count on this product. Highly recommended!!

at first look, it seemed like any other dmm. it has the banana plugs. looking closer, it doesn't have auto range. it uses a 9volt. most uses AA. its could be positive or negative here. the battery cover is confusing. if opened incorrectly you end up snapping the rear clips. the screen is small. it also fades. this is a brand new unit out of the box. using it, it shows that I have 2.0 volts on a D battery. this battery normally has 1.5v at full charge. repackaging it to return today. waste of money.
Does everything a DIY needs, is not cheap feeling at all, and always has served me wonderfully for 3 years now. Reading some of these reviews makes me laugh, and shake my head in amazement, like the guy who complains he bought it for $10 and it doesn't compare to his Fluke, "it feels too light". And he had to buy a 9v battery! Wah! (It worked just fine though.) Got to be Fluke salesmen making these negative reviews to justify the overpriced products they push. Unreal, I would hate to work in customer service with the people in this country today, its a bunch of spoiled brats. And thats the men. No wonder we cannot make American products anymore, this $10 tool is great and people complain, if it was American made it would cost double and then some billybob would lose his last front tooth screaming about a multimeter feeling too light or the display wasnt large enough. This used to be a pretty nice country with men in it.

Short story - my trusty Phillips ECG meter finally decided to quit functioning after about 20 years, I needed a simple meter to measure voltage, amperage, and test continuity for the time being, until I decided on a nicer replacement for the ECG. I bought this inexpensive Craftsman unit cause it should have been able to fit that bill. It did not. The first one I got wouldn't measure continuity. Right out of the box, any time you rotated the dial into that position, the unit began to beep, without the probes touching anything. I returned it the same day and swapped it for another one. The second unit seemed to function decently on voltage (I realized how much I miss auto-ranging) and continuity it worked passably (the buzzer was not very loud on this unit.) But the second unit would not measure DC amperage (current) no matter what you tried. I've returned the second unit, and had the local Sears Homestore folks credit it toward one of the nicer models in the range.

This tester is very rugged. I have pulled and jerked on the cord and dropped it many times and is as good as new. Especially like the longer cord so can find a good ground.
