[S] Bang for the Buck DMM Test Leads

Hi!

I have 4 DMMs but pretty much just 1 or 2 Pairs of Test leads – the rest is broken or lost.

I don’t want to spend 15$ or so for a pair of test leads, but also I don’t trust those 2-3$ ones from AliExpress .

Is there a sweet spot inbetween with not super-thin cables and sharp tips?

Thats the recommended shop for test leads on the eevblog-forum

https://www.ebay.com/str/99centhobbies

The Brymen gold-plated are really good. You can google for reviews.

Others are also good. The shop doesn’t sell crap.

Oh man, those do look nice indeed.
If the forum says that they are good, they sure are. I will buy those Smile

Thank you so much!

Money well spent. I love them. Quality product and very low internal resistance.

Make sure you choose the correct plug to match your DMM.

I can’t imagine the $2-$3 ones from AliExpress are going to be any better than what came with your DMM.
