This unit has good continuity (rare for low-cost units), and decent probes. We even left a meter on to test the battery life - it lasted more than 170 hours (7 days) before the included 9V gave out!
Note: This meter works well for measuring very small amounts of current. Check here for a tutorial. Replacement fuses can be found below.
