Aneng 888S DMM + Bluetooth Speaker + Alarm Clock WTF?

This qualifies for an entry the “oddest test instrument of 2020” contest.

The Aneng AN888S combines a 19999 count DMM, blue tooth speaker and alarm clock in one bench top device. Power comes from 2 18650 batteries or mains.

I may buy one just for the novelty factor.

$62 CNY sale at Bangood. I couldn’t resist. Buyer’s remorse will come later. Smile

Mine arrived yesterday.

A few quick first impressions:

The meter needs to be plugged into a charger to start the first time, even if the batteries are charged. After that it can be portable.

No CAT rating anywhere on the meter or the manual. No rating is better than the fake rating I’ve seen on other Aneng meters. The manual recommends disconnecting the charger when measuring high voltages. (good idea!!)

The power switch is in the back. Facepalm

So far it is a good bench DMM for $61. Speed and accuracy are good. I haven’t tried all the ranges yet. I’m not going to risk anything over 24V without a good look inside the meter.

The display is large, bright and easy to read. The clock was easy to set. The thermometer is within reason. I’ll test it soon.

The BT speaker is a fail. Dropouts and glitches every few seconds make it unlistenable. Sad

2.500 from a 2.5000 voltage reference.
