    Ohms Meter

    Can anybody suggest an inexpensive meter to just check ohms? One that can be purchased in Canada.

    Thanks in advance.

    Check Canadian Tire or Home Depot for digital multi-meters. Get digital, not analogue.

    CT has them on sale quite often ... I got mine in a plastic carry case with wire cutters/pliers included on sale for about 10 dollars. Just remember to pick up batteries for it.

    Re: Ohms Meter

    Canadian tire is your best bit for a cheap ohm meter or multimeter, not sure how accurate / durable the meters they sell are.

    Just personal opinion here, but for the price a cheap digital multimeter is a good investment.
    I own several due due to my trade, always one at home, one in the car, and two at work. You never know when you will need a meter.

    With a multimeter you can check battery voltages as well( assuming it does DC volts, not all do)

    Extech makes some very affordable meters:

    Thanks. That's great. That is the kind of price I'm talking about Is it supposed to be accurate and able to read small numbers such as .7 - .9 ohms?

    Thanks. The one at Canadian Tire is super cheap. $9.99. I think I'm going to go that route if I can confirm accuracy.

    its about as accurate as a $10 dollar multimeter, i bought one years ago and it has never steered me wrong, you are not measuring a really small resistance though, .7 to .9 is fairly low res but if you want something to measure even lower i would recommend a FLUKE meter, about $500 bucks though.

    Canadian Tire, for sure. I bought one and it works like a charm! Won't get much cheaper than that either.
