10357RE: Best cheap multimeter for capacitance
- Dec 28, 2013
I use both the SmartTweezers ($350, but really slick) and the AADE Model iIB ($99 kit). The AADE will measure L and C very stably and I carry it to hamfest tailgates. Get the 3/4 inch binding post spacing option - it fits standard banana jack spacing. See it at www.aade.com.
The SmartTweezer also gives you Q and ESR. It's a bit more precise, but the AADE's 1 to 2% is fine for most of the stuff I do :)
