Holdpeak_Digital_Multimeter (3) Holdpeak_Digital_Multimeter (2)The HoldPeak 36C multi-meter is constructed mostly of plastic with rubber accents to make it more durable.  Included with the meter are two sets of test leads and a brief user manual.  The meter is capable of measuring the following:

  • DC Voltage: 200mV-600V
  • AC Voltage 200V-600V
  • DC Current: 20mA-10A
  • AC Current: 20mA-10A
  • Resistance: 200Ohm-2M Ohm
  • Capacitance: 20 micro-fared
  • Diode Test
  • hFE Test
  • Continuity
  • Battery Test: 1.5V, 9V, 12V

It features a controllable back lit LCD and data hold function.

Throughout my testing the meter remained within 4% when compared to much more expensive true RMS meter.  I found this to be very good considering the price as many inexpensive meters I have used have often been off by as much as 20%.  While I would not use this for high precision testing, I highly recommend it for the casual mechanic, do it yourselfer, or hobbiest.  The inexpensive price combined with consistent performance and one year warranty, makes this meter easy to recommend.
