Kaiweets Digital Multimeter TRMS 6000 Counts HT118A

I bought a new digital multimeter from Amazon.ca. It is used to replace my very old digital multimeter, HDM350.

HDM350

I can only measure DC, AC Voltage, and current. And resistance. That’s all. I used it for more than twenty years.

  • DC  Voltage from 200mV to 600V.
  • AC Voltage from 200V, 600V.
  • DC current from 2mA to 200mA.
  • Resistance from 200 ohm to 200Mohm

 

I think I may need a new multimeter with more functions. So I did a little bit of research on Google and Amazon.

When I order the new Kaiweets digital Multimeter at Amazon.ca, it is $36.74 including TAX.

I checked an old capacitor labeled 220uf, 25V. The reading is about 249uf.

I checked a brand new 1000uf 25V. The reading is 1.045mf

I checked a brand new 1000uf 10V. The reading is 1.174mf.

I checked a brand new 220uf 25V. The reading is 222uf.

It looks the accuracy is not good enough. But I don’t have another multimeter to compare. So I can not say it is really bad.

 

 

For reference, I found a manual online, and save it here.
