Quick review of a cheap capacitor ESR meter and component tester from China. Cost $15 all-in (with free shipping). It checks capacitors, resistors, transistors, diodes and other electronic components if they are good/bad and show values. By no means professional grade, but useful for a hobbyist to have in their bag of tools for quick evaluation of parts.
In this video, I open up the box shipped from China and try it out for the first time. Plug in a 9V battery and without any instructions begin to plug in components. I neglected to mention there is a spot on the board for soldering SMD components for testing as well, with pads labelled “1″, “2″ and “3″. Otherwise the socket is good enough to plug in most components.
