I did not have a clamp meter for home use previously but have used current clamps in the past at work for measuring inrush currents and current draws on power supplies which were done using multi-thousand dollar Tektronix equipment. And while I haven''t compared this clamp meter to a reference like that there are videos of others doing similar things on youtube that show how accurate these little meters are. This one is set apart from most others in that it will measure DC current and temperature which not all clamp meters will do and I wanted an all-in-one solution to replace my circa 1980''s Micronta true RMS multi-meter.
It is nicely built with a solid feel and a good albeit single line display. Ergonomically it has nice graphics with good legend contrast except for one area. The rotary switch. While the action of the switch has great feel with firm detents for each position and a nice knurled and rubberized outer ring it has a position indicator that is a short pointer bar recessed into the top of the green part of the switch. It is very difficult to tell what it is pointing to unless you have good light. I''m sure Extech decided that the tooling and manufacturing cost of having of a double-shot version with a high contrast indicator would be too much for the price point they were shooting for on this meter. As compromises go this is a good one in my view.
Functionally the meter has everything one is likely to need and for home use its accuracy is more than adequate. AC voltage and current readings are true RMS with crest factor adjustment percentages listed in the manual for those who want to measure non-sinusoidal waveforms and who care about such things.
I had an issue recently with my heat pump. The service technician had a Fluke clamp meter and I though this would be a good opportunity to compare the Extech to the much more expensive Fluke. So we measured the current of the compressor motor and both meters read essentially the same (within a 100mA of each other) on a 12A reading. We did some voltage readings as well and found those to be virtually identical. Not bad!
Over the last couple of months since I received the Extech MA445 I''ve measured precision resistors, film caps, temps, line frequency, diode drops and tried out the NCV function. Everything works accurately and as advertised. Couldn''t ask for anything more considering the very reasonable cost.

Bought this to look at DC current draw in my cars, as suggested by the photo on the package. I think it will serve my purpose well. It also has lots of other functions that I am sure to enjoy.

My DC current measurement tests so far suggest it will allow me to read down to 10, 20, or 30 mA or so. That''s basically what it''s spec''ed at (about +/-2% +/-3 counts - which is about +/-30 mA when currents are small). Pressing and holding the zero-button worked well, bringing the reading to 00.00 or 00.01, ... Then opening the clamp and putting it on a wire carrying 100 mA (according to a through-measurement Wavetek meter), showed 00.13 of 130 mA. This will change though depending on how you move the loop head around to some extent. I think it depends on external B fields in the environment, which is a physics and environment issue, not an issue with the meter accuracy. Larger currents are fine. A 1.00A direct-measured current read 1.01A with the MA445 (very impressive for a clamp-on meter!)
But if you move the meter very far after cal, you could get shifts of up to 0.05A or more - just depends on the magnetic field lines in the area.

I also tested it on a few other functions:
DC voltage of 12.00 V was spot-on at 12.00V
Resistors of 22 Ohms, 10K, and 4.7M read within their tolerances and the auto-ranging speed was good.
Temperature read within a few degrees of what my wall-hung units showed in the house.
And the non-contact voltage thing seemed to detect which side of the outlet was hot (after I figured out where the sensor actually is ;-) I personally would never use this for deciding if power is present or not !

The meter is very nicely built and all functions I''ve tested so far work very well (reading the manual helps to resolve things like why doesn''t the backlight come on etc )

In short - its exactly what I expected and more. Nicely built and works well (within the limits of these tools). Definitely worth the price (and even a bit more maybe !)

I''d been wanting the Fluke I410 ac/dc current adapter for my 87-V meter; but the price for the I410 is very high and when I checked the accuracy specs for it vs the Extech MA445 it didn''t make sense to spend that kind of money for just the adapter. Plus the MA445 comes with the non-contact voltage feature which I didn''t have on other meters.

Overall the meter operation is pretty good for ~ $80 DMM. There are a few things I''d change after using DMM''s for over 40 years. First off, there really needs to be some finger moldings in the case so it''s easier to hold onto. First time I held probes in right hand and went to untangle the leads by stretching out the left hand holding the meter it went flying out of my hand! Thankfully the leads fit quite snug and prevented the meter from flying off onto the floor. Second, I would separate the AC and DC voltage so the mode button could be used to select fixed/or auto range. It becomes very annoying when doing automotive work. Fixing the meter on the 40 volt range will handle everything I have to measure. Pausing for the auto range feature to get the measurement gets tiring real fast and a slip of the probe means the cycle repeats. Third, beware the limited voltage input for the frequency/duty cycle mode - 20 volts rms max although overload is rated at 600 volts. (You did download/review the owner''s manual before buying right?). This limitation seems odd when you may need to check generator/line frequency at 120/240 volts. I did find I could get a frequency reading via using the NCV sensor for high voltage; but the manual doesn''t indicate this as a way to do so. Fourth, the rel/zero button is required to zero out DC amp offset so you can''t make delta amperage readings with the meter on DC amps - AC amps you can. Somewhat annoying feature that wasn''t clear in the ad; but again found this limitation in the manual. Fifth, some form of attachment clip or stand feature would be very useful. With the probes coming out the bottom they can sometimes help to hold the meter upright while using both hands to work the probes but given the narrow width of the meter it is constantly falling over for me. I usually try to wedge in between something to hold in place. Sixth, you can''t do ac rms on dc readings. Attempted to measure ac ripple on power supply filter cap - MA445 sort of goes bonkers. Not a problem for the Fluke; but of course it''s a more capable meter. This is another feature not mentioned in the manual; but never said it would handle that type of measurement. Finally, the temperature function matches readings quite well with the Fluke using the MA445 supplied probe. Just keep in mind the supplied probe is only good to 600F from what I can gather. The box and other info state the probe will not handle full range of MA445 but not the actual limit; however, I notice the value of 600 is shown on the meter pics in the manual and I think I saw that temp limit in the ad. Oddly the manual doesn''t state the probe temp limit either.

On the positive side I do appreciate the work lamp and disabling the power off features. The display is quite large and easy to read (although some of the display icons are pretty small). The meter samples 3x/sec which is good for most typical use. The max/min is simply storing high and low readings - no 100msec or 1msec high speed feature. I do wish I didn''t have to remove/replace a screw to access batteries; but I like the 3 AAA batteries vs cost of 9 volt ones.

If you are looking for a good feature, reasonable accuracy, well built DMM with clamp current capabilities I''d recommend checking out the MA445. If the manufacturer makes some improvements for the items I''d mentioned above I''d very likely buy another Extech. If I had to buy another clamp ampmeter right now I''d check out some of the other offerings and read their manuals before deciding; but I doubt many competitors offer a better meter for the same price.

Overall I am fairly pleased with the MA445. Now that I''ve become familiar with the meter I''m sure it will do my main task of clamp-on amp readings just fine. I''ll likely continue using my Fluke for most other tasks though.

I''m not an electrician, but I do a lot of electrical work around the house. So having a clamp meter is great. It''s like many tools; you can probably find a way to accomplish your task without it, but it makes your life SO much easier when you have the right tool. That being said, this is more than a typical DIY''er would need for general electrical work, but it certainly would hurt to get it. It has some great features like a flashlight, temperature lead, and an easily operated thumb-wheel that allows you to adjust it single-handedly.

It is easy to use with an easy visible display. It ranges quickly to the proper setting, and the mode button is easy to use to change measurement options. My favorite feature (while trivial) is that it beeps if a setting is changed. For some reason, I tend to inadvertently change my multimeter setting while moving them around. The beep is nice because it alerts you to a change. Perhaps I have just had cheap multimeters in the past - or I''m ham-handed. Likely the latter.

This meter comes with a case that easily fits the meter and leads. Only complaint is that the case does not have a handle.

I bought this meters because it offers 4-digit accuracy for its measurements. I had a feeling that it was too good to be true, but the reviews here seemed to say otherwise. Well, turns out the accuracy is a farce.

Cons:
-------------------------------------------------------------
* Every feature seems to have a drift of +/- 20 of the last significant digit. This is in addition to being more than 50 digits off before zeroing in Amps DC mode. Whether I''m measuring something a solid of constant temperature, I tend to have 2.0°C range (which is 4.0°F) within the time span of any two minutes; or if I''m measuring Amps, I tend to have up to +/- 0.20A when no current is running through the meter; or if I''m measuring Volts, .0020 Volts is very good when no current is running.

* Consequence: because the meter''s always drifting, it thinks it''s always being used, and so the auto-off function never kicks in. After measuring the first evening, the measurements were so off that I went to leave this review, forgetting to turn it off. The next morning, the battery was too dead to measure readings -- but, not too dead to keep the meter running. The meter was showing "---.--", further draining the battery; however, even then, the auto-off function didn''t kick in -- apparently, the battery didn''t provide enough juice for the auto-off function to work.

* Another consequence: low current measurements are way off, and are in no way reliable. Just one example: I put the clamp around a circuit with 0mA; the meter is drifting around 200mA. I turn 100 mA current on; within 10 seconds, the average of the meter''s drift climbs to about 250mA. After about 30 more seconds, the drift is back to around 210mA. Turning the current off has absolutely NO effect on the center of the drift. Apparently, this is in line with the specs -- my fault for not seeing this before purchasing. Just a side note that, when measuring currents as high as 1.00A, the accuracy of +/- 2.8% + 30 digits means that a reading of 0.67A, or two-thirds of the actual current, is also within specs (meter was showing 0.68-0.69 before the drift).

* However, there are enough things about this meter that do not live up to the specs. One example is, voltage readings are very unreliable. When the leads are not touching, the voltage shown drifts beyond .4000 V, sometimes displaying as AC (as easily demonstrated by clicking "MAX" when the leads are not touching). This is off by almost 5000 of the last significant digit. When measuring a 12V AC current, the meter drifts starting around 1.3V to about 2.6V, the whole time insisting that the current is DC. Removing one of the leads makes the current float between 3.2V and 3.6V -- also DC. Funny thing, though -- when measuring the frequency of this current, it shows it''s 60 Hz fairly accurately. However, the meter insists the current is DC, and refuses to show the correct reading as AC. This is a true RMS meter; wonder what the shape of the curve is, lol. Also, a side note that, touching the leads one to another *does* display that the voltage is zero (give or take up to 20 digits, as usual).

Addendum: before returning the meter, another day I needed to measure ~6A DC current, so I plug in my meter to compare readings to this one. This meter detected the current as AC, with a frequency of 4.0Hz (the frequency is displayed together with the current together on the display). Obviously, the amps were way off. Then the frequency "drifted" to 0.60Hz, then to 0.00Hz. Still showing as AC though, and still readings are off. Removing the meter and attaching it again was able to switch it to DC, and to display the correct current (modulo the above-described offsets).

* Temperature measurement is very inconsistent. For example, when the meter was brought in from outside, measuring my 24.5°C room shows drift centered at 42.5°C; I would imagine that out in the sun, it could have been 42.5°C (the leads stayed inside the whole time, though...). Immersing the end into room-temperature water makes the temperature immediately drop to 23.5; but -- get this -- as the water is heated, the drift on average is toward COOLING. So around 40°C, the temperature was showing around 18.5°C; when the water was too hot for me to keep my finger in, the temperature was showing around 14.5°C. Pulling the end out of the water back into the 24.5°C room, and drying it, within about 5 seconds the temperature returns to a drift centered around 42.5°C. p.s., almost no drift when measuring a liquid.

* Specs labeling is inconsistent. For example, the description says -100°C to 1000°C; the box says the probe included measures -50°C to 250°C; however, the probe itself says -30°C to 300°C. Measuring down to -30°C is not low enough for my application. Furthermore, considering the above, I''m not sure how accurate the measurements between -30°C and 0°C would be.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Pros:
* When measuring high voltages through the prongs, the meter is accurate according to specs. Unfortunately the same is not true through the clamp.

* If you''re willing to accept the huge precision errors, up to a 10-second wait (except when measuring current) to get the meter to float to the correct reading, and the fact that sometimes you need to re-attach the meter a couple times before it will detect the right type of electricity, then this meter will work (other than that 12V AC bug). Not sure if it''s worth paying 150 bucks for it, though...

Bottom line: if you''re getting this accuracy from, e.g. a battery charger which is measuring the current it''s producing, I can understand-- they are designed to charge batteries; measuring current is a second. But when an instrument is designed to measure current-- let''s just say that I was expecting more from a 40000 count meter. All these bugs already in the first day of using it... so I asked for a return same day I received it. Return was approved, but I have to pay return shipping.

Quite happy with this product. The meter is well built and has low current capability with a 1mA Resolution for DC current, a feature not available on many equally priced clamp meters. Needed to perform parasitic draw testing on my vehicles and did not want to use a multimeter which would require having to disconnect the battery and all subsequent issues related to waking up the ECM and having to wait for everything to go into sleep mode again. Researched several clamp meters able to read low DC current down to milliamps. My short list included the Extech 380942, the AMPROBE LH41A, General Technologies GTC CM100, Electronic Specialties (ES) 688 and a couple of low current probes such as the PDI CA-60 and the ESI 695. After reading about Extech Instruments and browsing their web site and noticing and the extensive list of products that they manufacture, I decided on the Extech. The only drawback that I found with the 380942 meter is that in order to take mA current readings, you must first zero out the display and must leave this function enabled in order to take accurate readings, and while you do this, the MIN/MAX functionality is not available. When you switch the meter to “mA”, the display will always display some value higher than zero, so you must enable the DCA zero function in order to take accurate readings. When measuring parasitic draw, a difference of just 30mA can make a difference between what would be considered normal and problem situation. I still believe the meter is taking accurate DC current readings at the mA level, however I wish I could use MAX/MIN function while doing this.

I am a Relay Technician and I work in generating plants and electrical substations. I have occasion to read low currents both ac and dc every day. My work is important, I am working in an environment where mistakes can cost millions of dollars and lives and untold cost and inconvenience for the electric consuming public. Good tools are important to me and this is a good one within it''s limitations. It is not the most sensitive or accurate meter available, just look at the specs. The Extech 380950 is much more accurate and sensitive for more than twice the money and there are amp on clammeters much more accurate and sensitive than the 380950. But none of them cost a hundred and a quarter. If you want a very cost effective meter this meter is an excellent candidate. If you want high accuracy and resolution you are going to have to pay a lot more money. For the record I have several clamps all more expensive than this, leakage current clamps for high resolution ac currents and high end ac/dc clamps for high resolution dc measurements. They only come out on special occasions.

This meter works great. I use it for checking my solar panels to insure each panel is pushing power to the inverters. Without this, I''d have to have someone watch the current output of the array and then cover each panel with a large piece of cardboard and see if the current drops by one panel''s worth. That is easier than unplugging each of them, but just clipping this meter over on of their leads is WAY EASIER than anything. Now the hardest part of this testing is getting up on the roof and finding the wires. It is also a one-man-job now since I don''t need anyone in the house at the inverters with a walkie-talkie.

I do wish there was a way to turn off the current sensor. It is on 24/7 and flashes anytime the meter is bumped. Clearly this will wear the battery down and if it is not removed when it is dead will corrode the battery terminals and compartment.

UPDATE 06/10/2015

REALLY wish the current / voltage presence sensor could be turned off. I need to store the meter in a zip-loc bag with the batteries removed because otherwise it constantly flashes and will kill the batteries which will leak and ruin the meter. That is REALLY ANNOYING! I need to unscrew the back, insert the batteries, screw the back on, use the meter, unscrew the back, remove the batteries, screw the back on, and put the parts back in the zip-loc. This is not very convenient when you want to check something quick.

Also, the DC current sensor gives two significantly different values if the meter is clipped on the wire ''forward'' (giving a positive reading) or ''backward'' (giving a negative reading). This makes me suspicious of the accuracy of the DC current readings. I used it last evening to check the current draw from a battery to an inverter that was running lights on a carnival booth my church was running at a local park. It registered +6.2 amps when clipped on the positive lead one way. It registered -4.8 amps when reversed on the same lead. I moved it around to see if the position of the lead in the clamp mattered or the angle, etc. Nothing seemed to affect the readings significantly and it was reproducible multiple times clipping and reversing. While packing up at the end of the night, the fellow helping me asked, "Why is your bag flashing a red light when I move it?" The meter was in a small nylon tool back and was flashing through the cloth when it was moved even gently. And there was no ''voltage'' nearby to sense since I shut down the lights and inverter by that time. I had to explain how the voltage presence sensor on that meter cannot be turned off and I hadn''t removed the batteries yet.

It still works for the main use I have of being sure my solar panels, which are all connected in parallel, are all connected and pushing power to the charger/inverter. But I do not consider the readings to be accurate for the DC current.

Added photo to show how I need to store it so that batteries won''t die and leak inside the meter and corrode it all apart.

Great, But One Achilles Heel...

Awesome meter for the money, especially considering it measures dc amps, a main reason why many buy this one. Is it better than a fluke? No, but I''d say it''s as good as a Klein. Extech has been around for a long time, it''s not one of these companies that change names all the time on Amazon, they have a huge catalogue of products, and you can get replacement parts etc. Also worth noting extech is now owned by FLIR, a high end meter and thermal imaging company. You can test assured you''re buying a good brand name product here. I carry it in my tool bag every day for service calls. The little light and volt tic features are nifty. My only complaint is like what others have mentioned, the fact that the led light display only stays on for 15 seconds, it''s not long enough, it was frustrating the other day when working on a outside yard light the other day in the dark. It''s enough of a frustration that if I could go back I would get Klein''s directly comparable meter to this one, same core features, almost same price and the display is always lit up. But I''m stuck with it now, overall great meter, but that display light is my only gripe.
