I'm looking for the most acurate ohm meter here on the $10 price range

they all look the same but just wanted to make sure

SKU 1519800
SKU 1504904
SKU 1494601

I've got SKU 1519800 and it's not very accurate, I wouldn't recommend it.

I've got SKU: 1494601 and its not worth using. The reading on this is way out when checked on any other device. :(
More sense than money.....

Its probably a toss up then. I have SKU 1494601 and its pretty accurate. Only about .2 difference between that and my fluke.

well a .2 difference is a huge thing for sub ohms

You're not going to do any better for $10.00.

And a Fluke is likely also .2 off from reality below 1 ohm. So if you measure .5 ohms with any $10 ohm meter, it may in fact be .1 ohm or .9 ohm. Which means, using anything else than a special milliohm meter (which is in the $100+ price range, e.g. a Vici) or some other special electronics is just like gambling.

SKU 1494601 : I was unfortunate with mine. It worked "fine" for just over a week, and then its circuitry failed, with all segments of its display just flickering when any atomiser was screwed on. I couldn't detect any signs of any e-liquid (or any other liquid) having penetrated within it, so I just wrote it off as component failure. (happens).
