Wow... First I think this one for sale looks awesome, and durable. Second...I love these meters with it built in...Very cool!
Third...Yeah, folks should have and know how to use a multi-meter anyway, these testers are a nice luxury, but there may be times when you have to chase down where a short or open is located, or your little box dies...I built my own too...I use 2 rechargeable AAs.
U can spend like... 5 bucks and get a converter for charging that USB! Vape On!
More than most, less than few...And way too much to ever fit here...

What about internal resistance with these modded multimeters? Still has the same as the one taken with leads?

Gatts, The 510 connectors are wired directly to the lead connections on board.

@Gatts

Yes, it should be the same. But instead of fiddling with the leads, I simply rebuild one of my unused clearo heads with NR wire and use that to measure the internal resistance.

Cedric ,even the connector has resistance ; i use a known measured resistance ( 2 ohm ) soldered on a connector to do that.
