I purchased this because sometimes I like to be able to check on batteries, and I have some outlets that need worked on. This should hopefully help me start to sort out the issues and verify when they are working again. This multimeter works very well and I haven't had any issues with it so far, but the leads seem a little flimsy and I am concerned that they make break pretty quickly. For the price on this, it is worth finding new leads instead of finding a new multimeter. I really like that it has overload protection in case I were to use it in a scenario that would overload it, and I like the low battery indicator on it as it makes it simple to know when it needs its batteries changed. The backlight is also a nice feature and the large LCD makes everything super easy to read.
