I use my multimeter to monitor voltage drop but for measuring ohms on a rebuildable, this is way better than holding two probes chopstick style in one hand and an atty and the monitor in the other hand.
Well worth $10 for years of comfort and convenience.

Lazy and convenience are two entirely different things. I'm done with the multimeter 2 probe chopstick stuff. At 10 bucks it a steal. At $25 I've passed on them.

Goodbro why the snarky response about being lazy? Who pissed in your Cheerios ?

I have a "Fluke 85" multimeter which is well over a $100 and yet it's not designed to use to accurately measure resistance so low. Its not possible to touch a lead against the wires with out getting different readings each time.

Just touching the probes together gives a reading over an ohm which needs to be subtracted to work out coil resistance.

You do need a special piece of kit that is super sensitive to only read very small resistances whereas a multimeter is a jack of all trades.

Even using a $1000 resistance meter gives a variety of readings depending where you touch, how hard etc. Do you remove surface oxide as this also changes the reading. I've seen people take multiple readings, discard highest and lowest and then take an average. When there's a big spread they take large numbers of readings.

This kind of measurement accuracy is needed when commissioning electrical sub-stations.

I think you will find that vapers know their resistance wire, how few turns they can use, how warm their battery gets and not get too worked up about what the number on the meter is.
Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; enjoying one moment at a time.

FT sells a variety of multimeters as well as this special-purpose one (which also serves as a rebuilding stand). So what's the beef?

well its proven that Trolls will whine at everything!

this thing is a MUST for vapers whos into RDA/RBA's, very convenient and less hassle of holding multimeter probes.

I agree mulitmeter's are a pain to check ohms, batteries it's fine much easier but not ohms! Theirs always people bitching on here! People buy what they want to buy, weather you think its crap or what its up to the buyer isn't it? Why can't everybody just get on with each other and stop bitching, or if you've got a problem with it talk to yourself about it not the world! Rant over.

I have to admit, I never check the ohm's. If that bitch is glowing red, it's not like I'm gonna scrap the coil and start over on another one because it's out of spec. :-) I'm goin with it.
