Hi hi, just like my cheapo meter I bought for a dxpedition, thought it would 
be ideal just incase it got lost or broken, works OK but 'Key up' anywhere 
near it and it just goes into 'random mode',  You get what you pay for...

This is a good deal on sale, but like fellow noted, 9 bucks to ship it is 
steep. Harbor Freight sells 3 different meters of this type, the cheapest 
being $5 all the time, and usually goes on sale for a couple bucks. These 
have detachable leads too. Check them out if you have one in town, and save 
the shipping. All the el-cheapo meters come from China, and are marginal at 
best, so don't expect Simpson dependability or accuracy. They just might 
quit on you at the most 'Murphy' moment of need.
