    What clamp meters have fuses in them? I have never owned, or have ever seen, a clamp meter with a fuse. DMM's have fuses for the current jacks, but clamps don't need that with the jaw.

    This fits the bill for small and durable. It's also waterproof. It also won't become a fireball, as it is CAT IV.

    In my opinion, Low Impedance on a meter is a must have. I will not buy a meter that does not have that function, because of Ghost Voltage.

    I don't think Fieldpiece or UEI have any meters with...

    Maybe, maybe not.

    The point that I was arguing is that VxA will always give Apparent Power, regardless of the type of load. If you know the phase difference of a inductive load, you can get the...

    To add to my last post, I am talking about a WATTAGE reading here, and not Power Factor.

    When computing Power Factor, you need Active Power readings, and Apparent Power readings. The "Apparent...

    VxA does NOT only work for DC circuits, it will also work for AC.

    As far as inductive vs resistive loads go, doesn't a TRMS meter make this a moot point? I agree that a RMS meter will give you...

    All the equipment lists running current, and LRA, which you can directly read off any standard clamp. If, for some reason you really want Watts (which I can't...

    I've looked at both the Klein and UEI side by side, and I like the Klein a lot better. The Klein clamps are higher safety rating, and just feel better. The DMM's are way better than the UEI models....

    It looks to me that they improved on the UEI design. UEI has no clamp like this. Klein made a better UEI.
