Top 10 Pc Based Multimeters
for February 2024

MOOZ Themes editors select recommendations independently, so your purchase through our link may earn us a commission.

A multimeter (also called a multimeter) is a device used to measure electrical parameters, such as voltage, current and resistance. Most multimeters test voltage, current and resistance, but some also test capacitance and frequency. A multimeter can make quick work of measuring electrical parameters such as voltage, current and resistance. In addition to measuring electrical parameters, many multimeters can also measure other parameters, such as temperature, pressure, and even light.

In the MOOZ Themes Reviews Lab, we have tested dozens of multimeters over the years, evaluating their features, performance, ease of use, and price point. Our top picks for multimeters of 2022 are affordable, accurate, and user-friendly devices.

Our picks for multimeters of 2022 are based on our comprehensive testing and knowledge within this category for reviewing specifications and documentation. That said, these are the best multimeters of 2022:

The Tekpower TP4000Z digital multimeter is a decent multimeter, especially for an inexpensive meter. It measures voltage, current, resistance, capacitance, and duty cycle (for testing motors), and it's accurate to 0.1%. It comes with software for Windows and Mac OS X. The meter measures both AC and DC voltages, and it's capable of testing both 12 and 24 volts. The meter also has continuity testing, which is important because many circuits use at least one wire run from a single point to ground. The meter can also beep, and there's a push-button auto range selector for quickly testing voltage, current, and resistance. The meter's case design is attractive, and it's made of solid metal, so it's more durable than many other meters. The meter's display is bright and easy to read, and the meter's buttons are responsive. The meter's software allows you to store up to 100 readings, and it has a variety of functions. The meter's software can also read from a connected USB memory stick.

Hantek 365B PC Based USB True RMS Digital Multimeter Data Logger

Hantek 365B PC Based USB RMS True Digital Multimeter Data Logger

by Hantek

Support Android system mobile phone and tablet computer

The Hantek 365B digital multimeter is one of the best we've ever tested. Its accurate readings and wide range of features make it well-suited for electrical, electronic, and HVAC work, as well as troubleshooting. It has 1,024x768 resolution for clear, bright, easy-to-read readings, and a battery-backed memory stores 16,384 readings for 30 days. The 365B's data logging feature stores up to 10,000 readings, which you can then analyze in TrendView software. The 365B also logs temperature, and the software can graph that data, too. The 365B can display data in either engineering units or metric units, and it's simple enough to use that even novice users should be able to learn it easily. It has a small, lightweight design and a rubberized grip that makes it comfortable to hold and use. The 365B's large, 2.4-inch LCD screen makes it easy to view readings, and the 365B's backlight is adjustable. The 365B's display is also backlit, so it's easy to read in low-light conditions. The 365B's software is also easy to use. Version 6.0 has features that we hadn't seen in any of our previous multimeters, such as the ability to view a waveform, a continuity test, and a test for a diode. The 365B's software is compatible with Windows 7, 8, and 10. However, the 365B's software only supports 64-bit operating systems. The 365B doesn't ship with batteries, so you need to buy those separately. The 365B also has a number of optional accessories, such as a probe holder and a mini LED flashlight. The 365B is pricey, but it's big, durable, and gets the job done.

BTMETER BT-90EPC Digital Multimeter, Auto-Ranging AC/DC Volt Amp Ohm Temperature Electric Multi-Tester, w/ USB to PC Link Sync for Data Logging

BTMETER BT-90EPC Digital Multimeter

by BTMETER

Attached to Clamp-on Amp ProbeIts more convenient to attach the BT-90EPC meter to BT-605A AC/DC Amp Clamp Probe for amps measurement. Allowing you remotely monitor to computer and record the circuit data.

The BTMETER BT-90EPC is our favorite digital multimeter because it performs well across a wide range of measurements, has an intuitive interface, and it's easy to use. It has a large display with a backlight, and it uses an LCD font that's easy to read. The meter's buttons are arranged intuitively, and while the buttons are very small, they're easy to press with gloved hands. The meter has 14 voltage ranges, and it's preset to automatically switch to autoranging mode when measuring AC voltage. You can also manually switch to manual mode, but you'll need to press 3 buttons to do so, and toggling between auto and manual modes is a little tricky. The meter can display 4 different fields of data simultaneously, and it includes data logging features that allow you to save measurements on a PC. The meter also includes an Ammeter, Voltmeter, and Temperature Meter. The meter comes with an interactive manual on the CD, and it includes software that lets you export your measurements to Excel and TXT files. The meter has a USB to PC link cord for connecting the meter to a computer. The meter runs on 4 AAA batteries, which are included. We also like the fact that the meter has a power-saving mode, and that when it powers off, it automatically powers off after 30 minutes of inactivity. The meter also provides data logging features, but we found that the data logging feature isn't as useful as some of the other multimeters we tested. The meter requires 2 AAA batteries, which are not included.

Crenova MS8233D Auto-Ranging Digital Multimeter Home Tools Measuring with Backlight LCD Display

by CRENOVA

Backlight Display Designed with 3 1/2 digit LCD display and 'Backlight', showing the reading clearly in low light areas.

The Crenova MS8233D has a solid metal case, and it feels more solid than our previous pick, the Multimeter 6045. It's also lighter and more compact, so it's much more portable. It's easy to read, with backlit LCD and buttons, and it's easy to use, too. It has a lot of useful measuring functions, including continuity, diode, frequency, frequency, and voltage. It also has an auto-ranging function, which is good for switching plugs or testing digital devices. The MS8233D can test voltage from 0 to 300 volts, current from 0 to 300 amps, resistance from 0 to 200 ohms, frequency from 0 to 10,000 Hz, and diode from 0 to 1000 mV. It's also capable of measuring capacitance, but it doesn't have an autoranging function for that. The MS8233D is accurate enough to handle most home electrical repairs, but it won't be able handle professional jobs, where you need more precise measurements.

by KAIWEETS

EASY OPERATION - Switch the dial to the function you need, and the LED lights on the jacks will shine accordingly. To plug in the leads is easy. Autoranging saves you the hassle of having to know which range of value. Large 2.9 LCD backlight display, easy-to-read digits offer a 6000-count resolution.

The KAIWEETS HT118A is a great choice for electrical hobbyists and DIYers. The multimeter is easy to read, has a wide selection of measurement functions, and is relatively inexpensive. The 6.0-inch color screen makes it a bit easier to read than the smaller, monochrome displays on the previous pick, and the digits are larger as well. The 600V AC/DC voltage range makes this pick a good choice for testing automotive batteries, and the higher range (0.2V~60V), which we measured to be accurate to 0.1%, makes it useful for testing other voltage-sensitive electronics. The 10A AC/DC current range makes it a good choice for testing automotive alternators, and the 60 MOhms resistance range makes it a good choice for testing electrical motors and appliances. The 6000-count display makes it easy to see exactly what's going on. The HT118A measures capacitance, frequency, duty-cycle, and wire on-off, and tests diodes and continuity.
