If you want a good one, Fluke are quite well thought of.

All depends on how much you want to spend. Most handheld dmm are only fused for 10amps without a shunt. I know they make some dmm's that have an inductive pickup for amps, that is what I use.

On the other end of the spectrum, Harbor Freight has a DVM for about $8, but you're not going to measure the current of your cell with that.

I agree, Fluke is one of the better brands.

harbor freight will give you a good backup, FLUKE will give you a DMM for life. Although spendy they are worth every hard earned penny if you know how to use your tool.

Blue Sea has a good clamp on multi meter and fits in smaller spaces.....for quality and dependability go to Sears, they also have a good clamp on multy meter.

I have this. Cheap and does its job. Also measures dc current and frequency, unlike many other cheapos.

RE: best multimeter to purchase?
f you are an electrician then you absolutely need a multimeter to get your job done. Even homeowners find that having a digital multimeter makes DIY projects much easier. A multimeter is an electrical measuring instrument which lets the owner measure things like resistance, current, and AC or DC voltage. They come in handy when working with batteries, switches, power sources, motors, components, you name it. The word "multi" in the multimeter is the clue that this measuring tool will help you out with more than 1 measurement. You'll find that the combination of an ammeter, voltmeter, and ohmmeter is quite useful especially when trying to diagnose things like electrical problems. Handheld multimeters are the most common style and the 2 varieties are analog and digital. The analog multimeters have a needle indicator while the digital multimeters have an LCD display which shows you a decimal readout.,,,copied

Try to find a heater on ebay.com.
look for reviews and buyers response before purchasing.
