Excellent value for money. I work in commercial industrial A/C and megging out motors is something I do on a regular basis.
This thing is fairly accurate, I've tested it alongside a $1500 AEMC unit and it worked just fine. I wouldn't recommend it on stuff much bigger than 25hp. It's simply not precise enough to keep a trending log.

However for small compressors, blower motors, etc, it works great. It's also good for testing wiring inside units for those "intermittent" electrical issues we love to run across.

Downside, the leads are far too short.

I had many meggers in my life. This Supco Digital is reasonably priced but does a excellent job. The LED system makes it much easier to use..Highly recommend.

This meter is working out fine for checking compressors in refrigerator 's . I do appliance repair so it is just what I need for checking washer / dryer /frig/freezers .it a good tool And will be using it a lot. It is easy to use and I can. Show my customer the results right on the meter so they can see what I know what I'm talking about when I tell them the motor is failed or going bad .it LSO helps me look more professional.

This a great tool for any technician who has to test motors, refrigerant compressors, etc Small and light enough to be always carried in your tool bag, easy to use.
Only complaint would be that the leads are short, another 6 inches wiuld have been nice.

I thought I was buying a made in USA product. The picture clearly says " made in USA" on the tester. When it came it says on it made in china. As far as I can tell it may work ok . But if I knew it was made in china I would have purchased the cheaper Chinese model that does more. Bought it because I thought I was helping Americans .

It is quick and fast. The clips are a little small, and the wires a little short, but still worth the money.
