Klein MM100 Multimeter Giveaway

Klein MM100 multimeter review

The Klein MM100

The review for the Klein MM100 multimeter went up at the end of August. Most of you have for sure already read it. If you did, you can see that I would have to consider it to be at the bottom of all of the multimeters reviewed here. And yay, it is the next tool to be given away to one of the site members. Ha ha. Who wants to win the least recommended multimeter? You #Wmardorf? Maybe you #willpham87? Those are the first hashtags I’ve ever used.

Do you guys want to continue with reviews of multimeters? Maybe we can move on to another category of tools? I don’t know, what do you think? Let me know via email or a comment below.

Per the usual, the drawing for the Klein MM100 will follow the same guidelines. When you subscribe as members the site automatically assigns you a specific number. The number range then gets put into a random number generator and it spits out a number. I write a post, send out a group email to all members with a link to this post, and then let the winner know. The winner, maybe you, then has a week to respond, otherwise another member gets picked and someone else gets it. So be sure to check your email. The meter will then be shipped to you on the site’s dime, if you live in the U.S.

The Klein MM100 was I believe the lowest priced meter that was reviewed here. It is your basic multimeter and doesn’t have an abundance of wow factor features. It is manual ranging but it does come with a Klein two year warranty. If you’d like to check out the entire review of the Klein MM100, click here.

The drawing will be done right after this. It only takes a couple of minutes. I do need to clean up some of the members though. Despite not adding too much new content lately, the number of members has increased quite a bit. Remember, if you get someone to sign up, or share something, you’ll get another shot, or entry, at winning the monthly tool. Just let me know if you do so that you get the credit.

I hope you all had an awesome summer. It is already mid-September, and fall is nearly here. Where did the year go? Things have been pretty much the same around here. I’ve been doing a lot of working outside. I have a wood pallet project going on right now. How about you? Any cool projects or ideas you’d want to share with the site? Always looking to hear about something cool. Alright, that about does it for this post. Until next time people.

Klein MM100 Multimeter Review

For this last multimeter, and only 16 months later, we are going to review the Klein MM100. No, it’s not the most fancy meter that Klein makes, it’s probably one of their more basic models. The Klein MM100 is priced near the lower end of electrical multimeters and is about average for the ones we have reviewed. Perhaps it would have been smarter to start lower and work our way up to the more expensive ones.

At some work sites your employer will buy all of your tools for you. At one place, the hand tools they purchased were made by Klein. Klein was pretty much the industry standard for electrical tools among journeymen electricians back then. Not necessarily their multimeters but for sure their hand tools. With that in the back of my head, I had high hopes for the MM100 meter. Sorry, and no offense to Klein, but I don’t think I’d recommend this meter to you guys.

The Klein MM100 looks rugged enough, it has a very similar style hard case that the Triplett multimeter does. Hopefully you noticed that it reads “looks rugged,” now that I’ve felt it, it’s not that rugged or beefy. It would work at home, in your garage, and perhaps as a carry around meter for a light trade technician. It’s a stretch to say it is heavy duty. It does have the Klein name attached to it though.

It has a 600V rating and can measure current up to 10 amps DC. The Klein MM100 might work well for the homeowner, the person that fixes their own vehicle, or some hobbyists.

Here are some features you may want to consider before choosing any multimeter:

  • Digital.
  • Audible indication.
  • Compact.
  • Universal use – volts, amps, resistance.
  • At least 600V rating.
