In Voltlog #114 I reviewed the Aneng 8008 and I said it’s probably the best $25 multimeter that you can buy. Today we are taking a look at the Aneng AN8009 which is a newer model from Aneng.
In the end I would say this new AN8009 model is just as good as the AN8008 and they are both great beginner multimeters but they can also be good for the more advanced user who better understands their limitations.
My recommendation is to take a look at the differences between the two and choose based on your needs: ask yourself, do I need temperature measurements? Do I need the extra resistance range? Or do I need the square wave output. Better yet, and this is what I would do, I would get both models to have all of those functions when needed. Also it’s good to have two multimeters because you can measure both voltage and current at the same time.
Here are some links where you can get the Aneng 8009:
today we are taking a look at the UNIT UT211B clamp meter it can do both AC and DC measurement and it has 1mA resolution on DC measurements and 0.1mA on AC. We’re also going to take a look at the DANIU P1600D test lead kit which has a bunch of accessories that might be useful.
Today we are taking a look at the ANENG AN8008 multimeter. This product was sent to me by banggood.com free of charge for the purpose of this review. They also sent me an ESD mat, because I have two benches in here in only one of them had an ESD mat so I needed a second one.
There is also a newer model, the AN8009 which I also reviewed, you can read about it here.

Hi and welcome to a new InTheMail, this time we have allot of items to look at and some of them were ordered 2 or even 3 months ago but due to the postal service madness that happens every year during holidays they arrived a bit late.
The video is split across two parts to avoid making it too long so make sure you watch both parts.
This is the first video for 2016 and hopefully one of the many this year. I’m giving you an update on what I’ve been up to, that is an auction score where I got myself some nice multimeters (Fluke 87, Fluke 77 and Tektronix TX1) for a good price and the dark load project that I’m working on.
