The bad.. god forbid you make a mistake and blow a fuse. Cannot find replacement fuses for this meter anywhere. I called Amprobe and sat on hold for over a half hour inquiring on how I can get a replacement 660v fuse. I finally gave up and just hung up. I mean how can the consumer be expected to locate the fuse if the manufacturer can't. Should I be able to resolve this I will update the review.
No contact detection does not work on receptacles.
EDIT- I emailed the company a week ago (now 12 days) about the fuses and still no email response. HORRIBLE customer service. Second email has been sent.
OK finally have the fuse replacement part numbers.. FP 500 (.5 amp) and FP 540 (10 amp). The guy that helped me today in customer service was very nice. It did take them a good hour to track down the fuse numbers, but he got back to me promptly.
I've uploaded 10 photos that I recommend viewing. Of note:
-The circuit board design is very nicely laid out with decent components and no dodgy connections.
-There is decent overload and blast protection.
-The whole thing goes together in a simple and clean manner. It is tight design.
-The main chip is a Cyrustek ES51995, a 6000 count chip.
-The case is held together with three self-tapping screws (not the preferred method, but common at this level).
-There is a backlight which I really like. It just stays on for a few seconds. I would have liked to be able to toggle it on and off at will.
-The test leads can be clipped into the rear.
-The probe barrels are split (two of them so as to detect improper leads).
-There is a flashlight function (LED bulb at the top).
-The kit includes a useful case for protecting the multimeter in your toolbox. The case is large enough to also hold the probes, leads, velcro strap and manual.
The multimeter has a solid feel. The selector switch has well defined detents and the case does not spin if using it on a flat surface. The bail is fine and you can use all of the buttons without difficulty in the upright position except for the 400k Ohm input impedance button. The screen is big and easy to read; the decimal point is always easy to spot. There are two type-k temperature probes that can be attached for simultaneous readings. Past Amprobe multimeters have had an annoying beep when turning the selector switch; thankfully this function has been eliminated.Read more ›
* All the features you would ever need for general electrical/electronic work
* Very professional appearance and almost perfect build quality
* Large and uncluttered LCD display with manual backlight
* Built-in LED flashlight
* Auto-Ranging measurements were slower than expected
* The VoltSense feature doesn't work
* Narrow vertical LCD viewing angle under indoor lighting
* Fold-out meter stand isn't very rugged
The overall appearance, build quality, and features of the AM-530 are excellent for a full size multi-meter in the $60-$80 price range. The meter enclosure is very solid with no gaps in any front, side, or back seams. I can twist the case, squeeze it, and bang it around without causing strange bends, pops, or cracks. This meter will hold up well in the tool box and it looks very professional. The AM-530 is light enough at 13.5oz to be carried on the belt or held for extended periods of time. The sides of the meter are rubberized and provide a textured hand grip that makes it easy and comfortable to hold when taking measurements indoors or out. The rubber coating picks up grease and dirt from your hands a little but is easily cleaned with a damp cloth. The case includes two probe clips integral to the back cover that grip the probes firmly with no slipping. There is also a fold-out meter stand for propping the meter up on the workbench. I was a disappointed with the fold-out meter stand. It's very thin and the hinge is not very strong so I suspect it will not last under regular use. The stand is part of the battery cover and if it's missing, changing the battery may be a little harder.Read more ›
I can't take the space or time to list all the results here. But a sample of the AM-510 compared to the Fluke 85V (the "best" meter I have, and it is good) are here. I will list the actual reference value first, then the 85V, and finally the AM-510 for a few measurements. 100.060kohm/100.1kohm/100.1kohm. 5.0000vdc/5.000vdc/4.99vdc. 20.000812khz/20.00khz/19.99khz. 0.2500vdc/0.250vdc/0.249vdc. 9.9999vdc/10.0vdc/9.98vdc. These are representative results of 13 different measurements. Not too shabby a performance for the AM-510. And, I might add, the Fluke 85V sells for roughly 10 times the price of the AM-510 on Amazon.
Great, great buy in my opinion. Now, I have no doubt that the Fluke 85V is more rugged, safer, and has more circuitry protections than the AM-510. That said the AM-510 appears to not be fragile by any stretch. On the contrary.Read more ›

Solid multimeter. Only downside is that the backlight turns off way too quickly, which can be really frustrating.Published 13 days ago by Nick T
