No DC clamp ability, low precision

If you know what you are getting, this is a good product. It's a bit frustrating that it doesn't state in the description that the clamp only works on AC current (not DC current). The Fluke website description also doesn't tell you this. If you want to measure DC current, you'll have to look elsewhere (I'm going to be getting the Fluke 179 multimeter and Fluke i410 clamp).Additionally, although I would likely use a different meter for measuring voltage in general, I was surprised at the lack of resolution on the DC voltage readings I was getting off 6 volt and 12 volt batteries. There is no decimal point, so if I was close to 6 volts or 12 volts, it would just round down to 6 or 12 (i.e. not giving a reading like 6.3 or 12.43). For my purposes, this level of detail is significant, especially if I don't know if a 12 volt battery is at 11.6 or 12.4 because the meter is rounding off to the nearest whole number).If you are just looking for a good AC clamp meter, this is likely a very good meter. Just not good for my purposes (motorcycle and automobile repair).Additionally it would be useful to have a manual that shows how to do things with more specificity than the current included diagram, which is very minimal.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

Useless to me

I purchased the T5 meter to replace my $4 Harbor Freight meter. I am looking to assess charging and voltage loss in 12v DC and this meter is not capable of the job. If this meter would go to one decimal for DC volts I would rate it at least 4 stars. The paperwork lists it's precision past one decimal so I do not understand why it is not displayed.

Recommendation: No, I would not recommend this product.

A Must Have

I bought my first one almost 10 years ago, it's been dropped, kicked, beaten and tortured and is still working as well as the day I got it. I have 3 of these now, 1 I keep in my glove box, 1 in the kitchen drawer, and 1 I keep in my back pocket at work. I have gotten so use to this little meter I'd be lost if I didn't always have one in reach. Inexpensive, extremely durable, reliable, compact and portable. Covers all the basics needed whether your a professional service technician or just a DIY home user. It is insanely easy to learn and use with no complicated features the average person does not need anyhow.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

Robust meter

Ive had my fluke t5 series meter for the last 5 years and it's been dropped fought with other tools in my bag been in the rain several times and not once has it give me any doubt. This meter is robust and simple to use the only downfall is that the ting size is too large to get in tight spots but apart from that one little gripe it's been the best meter I've ever owned!!! I've also got a 179 true RMS but it doesn't get used every day.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

My daily driver

I use this tester nearly every day. I own 3 Fluke meters and this is the one I grab first and keep in my tool bag. Small form factor, light weight, easy to use.The only thing I would like to see is a higher resolution readout of the voltage. In AC voltage there is no decimal but there is in DC Voltage and Amps.Minor detail, and when I need higher number resolution, I breakout the 87V anyway....

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

Britass - Thursday, July 26th 2012

Best tool in my arsenal bar nun!

Take it to every job, reliable and adaptable. it\u2019s nice to purchase a tool which exceeds your expectations, you can't find that these days!

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

CheeseSarge - Tuesday, June 19th 2012

Excellent residential meter

I purchased this to replace an older solenoid type tester and there is no comparrison. This meter can easily measure AC current, both AC and DC voltage and continuity versus just an AC voltage indicator from my old meter. It is durable, I am glad that you guys do drop tests off ladders, and easy to use. I use mine a lot. This meter is perfect for residential work.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

Ed1360 - Tuesday, June 19th 2012

This product is very awesome

I'm been using this product for many years. And i love all its features. It mades my job easier. It no matter if i am working with Ac or Dc current.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

nyj99 - Friday, June 15th 2012

Very handy to have around.

This meter is what I mainly use for fast voltage reading and troubleshooting. It's the best and most convenient tool in my tool belt. I recommend one along with the holster.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

Hozzer76 - Wednesday, June 13th 2012

The amazing T5

This meter is just awesome! I use it at the steel mill I work at and it has outperformed my expectations. It is small enough to carry to every job. It has the versitilty to do 90% of the reading I take on a daily basis. When I get a call from the plant I will not head out without this amazing, durable, well designed meter a must for all electricians.

Recommendation: Yes, I would recommend this product.

Basinsparky - Friday, June 8th 2012
