Default DVM at Aldi

Yet another DVM @ 9.99. I didn't get a good look as I was told "you've got enough of them".

You can certainly do better for your money. I only paid 6 more for my Fluke 8060A recently...

I bought one. and then read the spec again properly and realised it only goes up to 300 volts on ac and dc. but never mind its there if the others pack up despite the lack of a decent voltage rating.

Cheers
Neil.

I'll add this to this post, but it may warrant a separate post. Tonight I found that Lidl are advertising Lidl Plus. Seems like some sortb of rewards app for phones. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...lplus&hl=en_GB
But inside the Lidl shop mag I noticed that there's 5 off first purchase ( I'd imagine when registered). Inside store ( I'd imagine for a limited period ) there's a cordless SDS drill at 25. ( I can't remember if that with/without battery). If with battery it seems a bargain with 5 off.
