Measure with clamp meter
I have installed a Dry Cell and got it running for around 10 minutes. My target was 16 amps and i'm using a DC clamp meter on the positive wire from the Dry Cell. I get 2 different readings when the + arm is facing towards the cell, i get 16 amps, when i reverse the display away from the Cell, now - arm facing towards Cell, i get a reading of 12 amps.
Which is the proper way to read the right ampeage or have i got a faulty meter ?

RE: Measure with clamp meter
You want to get a reading of the current going toward the cell. So that will be on the negative.
