Description: (best multimeter test leads)
Professional electricians use a variety of testers to check a wide range of electrical functions in residential and commercial electrical wiring, and DIY homeowners will also find some of these tools useful.
Learning to identify these testers, understanding their functions, and learning how to use them will greatly expand your expertise when it comes to working on electrical wiring.
Some testers are multi-function devices that can perform most, if not all, of the common electrical testing duties, while others are single-function devices that test for a single function.
Various electrical testers can be used to check voltage levels in both AC and DC circuits, to test for amperage, continuity, short circuits, and open circuits, polarity and more. Some of these terms are unfamiliar to most homeowners but most important for a DIYer who plans to work on home wiring is knowing how to test for the presence of live voltage.

Multi meters are the most versatile of the electrical testers and, as the name implies, they are capable of many different testing functions. All professional electricians own one of these tools. Most multimeters can provide precise readings of resistance, AC and DC voltage, continuity, capacitance, and frequency. If you learn how to use all its functions, a multimeter can provide virtually all the information offered by all other testers.
Multimeters have a boxy body with a digital or analog readout, a dial for setting the test function (as well as voltage and various readout settings), and two long leads with metal probes at their ends. These testers range widely in quality and accuracy, so if you buy one, it makes sense to invest in a quality tool. (best multimeter test leads)
