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:
This is a followup video on the 300W pure sine wave inverter I reviewed a couple of weeks ago. A couple of people we’re curious how the output mosfets are switched in order to obtain that nice looking sine wave on the output.
Today we are taking a look at a 300W pure sine wave inverter which was provided for free by banggood.com for the purpose of this video. First we take a look at it’s output on the oscilloscope and then we continue with a teardown of the inverter.
Today we are taking a look at this SilverCrest USB charger that LIDL had on offer the past week here in Romania. I think it was sold for approximately 3.5 EUR which is not bad value for money if this turns out to be a safe to use charger.
This USB charger is sold very cheap on GearBest.com and a viewer suggested I should get one and do a teardown to check the safety aspects. So I got one, and it looks decent inside, however clearly built down to a cost.
