The AstroAI True RMS Multimeter is designed to be safely and accurately used by professionals in a commercial setting or weekend DIYer's that need a little more power utility from their standard digital multimeter. It's easy and safe to operate with advanced features built for measuring seemingly everything. Run tests on diodes and transistors while being able to measure voltage, current, resistance, continuity, capacitance, and frequency, all on one device. This multimeter is designed to be used in commercial settings, but can also be brought home to use with automotive or household electrical problems.

Hold/Max/Min/Relative and Manual range features are absolutely great to have, I've been missing them in another multimeter I've had until now
One weird thing is that when it detects continuity (on continuity mode) the beep length has a set minimum so if you there's continuity for a split second it will keep beeping for longer. But at least it gives you certainty that it's there.
Clamp feature is interesting but requires an extra accessory
Leads' touch-points are put on from the factory and shielded and I didn't find a good way to attach clips securely but that's a minor issue
But oh my god the NOISE. The BEEPING SOUND. It's a NIGHTMARE.
Every. Push. Of. A. Button. And. Selection. Wheel. Turn. Makes. It. Beep.
Want to tinker with electronics after your wife goes to bed? Better try outside the house, just watch out for neighbours.
I'll probably disassemble it and try to lower the volume with a resistor or something. There's no option to turn it off.
Three small issues:
Firstly, the manual says you can press the Hz/Duty button while measuring voltage to get a frequency. This doesn't work, the button does nothing. You have to dial in the frequency measurement instead.
Secondly, I've found the temperature measurements with the supplied k-type sensor to be a bit inaccurate (maybe 10 degrees off at room temp). I've had two of these (one I returned as something was missing) and the first one did not seem to have this problem. I've ordered another probe and will see if that makes a difference.
Thirdly, the mutli-function attachment has holes for caps and transistors; I found I don't get a snug fit with these which can affect the measurements.
These are very minor niggles, I'm satisfied with this purchase, which at this price point is hard to beat.

Here is a summary of why I would AVOID this at all costs:
The test leads DO NOT WORK at all. This is mentioned in several places on the internet. You MUST replace them. With decent leads from a fluke or DiLog, the meter does actually work.
However - even with decent leads the readings are inaccurate.
The back-light switches off after 30 seconds and there is no way to over-ride this. This makes is useless as you have to keep going to the meter to switch it on.
The 'adapter' for testing transistors etc is cheap and nasty. The sockets are so tight you cannot actually get a component in. Useless.
The build quality feels very cheap and I would be surprised if this lasted any length of time. The kickstand is hard to open and paper thin. The unit is very bulky for what it is. On the plus side - the red is a nice colour!
To summarise - this seems like a fantastic value item on paper - but it is in reality very cheap and very nasty. I have nothing against low cost good value items, and have several cheap meters that do a great job. This product has been hyped on the internet (are the 'best value multimeter's' pages you find where this is listed as number 1 actually independent and unbiased?) I found it to be completely unusable and returned it as not fit for purpose.
My recommendation is to ignore the 5 star reviews (I am not sure what they are comparing this to but I have an old £10 meter from about 20 years ago that is 3 times as good as the AstroAI and has decent leads)
If you want a budget meter look elsewhere. There are several other budget meters that offer accurate measurements and come with leads that work.
If you want the best, get a fluke.
If you want a really decent meter at a fantastic price - check out the DiLog products. They are a UK company (formerly based in Wales, but I think have moved the head office to Manchester) with products equivalent in quality to Flukes but around half the price. Their customer service I have found to be very responsive and helpful too. Give them a try and support a UK business!
I love it, but to be honest probably won't use half the settings on it.
