Do you mean a great way to test if the 9v battery of the multimeter is dead?

Generally, yes, but it's $10.

Lots of places do. I have a couple of expensive ones and several more cheap ones, and for me the most important differences have been:

1. The function selector dial craps out quickly on the cheap ones, rendering the unit unreliable and annoying to use.

2. The reading on the cheap ones can be affected by the voltage level of their internal battery, so you may be getting an inaccurate reading without knowing it.

I did say, "Get both if you act fast." ;)

Apparently now 100% claimed. You might want to join the waitlist. These sorts of Lightning Deals come up often, then repeat so you may get lucky.

I don't see anything about 'Wait List' when I click on your link or when I search for the product online.
How do you see that option please?

The screen shot was from the Today's Deals page. I should have saved the link while I was there, but I didn't. Now it's gone. It's also gone from the Missed tab in "Limited Time Lightning Deals" at the bottom of that page.

So, unless I've missed another way to do it, all it seems you can do now is add the item to your Wishlist and hope to see it there and/or check "Today's Deals" regularly.

I've never had the selector fail or seen any that did. I see charred components way more often. This means no power, or nonsensical values.

All the meters I have have low battery indicators. If you still use it when low battery, that's your risk of invalid measurement.

For me, auto ranging is a must, and having audible continuity without having to select function button because they dual purposed with diode testing and made that primary function. Those designers that do that should be fired.
