The package

Here comes biggest disapointment. The package is just foil envelope and inside this is just cloth case, for me it’s a little bit small protection, I don’t count on super extra designet iluminated package but some extra layer even bubble wrap to protect multimeter would be great. When I saw how postman treat It i suspect worts fortunately nothing bad happend to my multimeter.

The multimeter is pack in cloth case.
With multimeter we receive many extra accesories.

Inside the cloth case we find ANENG AN8009, user manual, 2 pairs of multimeter probes, termocoupler, many of extra tops for multimeter probes.

The quality of made

For 20$ is great quality of made, it’s just good quality, what can I say more. Only the plastic probes are not perfect but still very good. The multimeter seems to be solid. Know works very satisfying. Awesome for 20$.

ANENG AN8009 is made very well.
On the rear side of multimeter is battery socket.

Cloth case

The case is great feature, great item to hold your multimeter safe. My unfortunality had some quality problems but after contat with seller he made some small refound, thats nice of him. I skip this small accident. Type of cloth slightly protect multimeter from getting wet. The case is just good.

Case for multimeter wasn't perfect but seller was helpfull with deal with this problem.
As you can see my case wasen’t perfet but seller was fair and make small refound.


The accesories are very good and amount of them let you use multimeter in so many ways. They seems to be durable and do their job. The extra tips are easy to insall just unscrew older one and screw new one.

The usage

This tool have many features so to improve your usage it’s good to read user manual first. After this you realise everything is easy and conjectural. The measure is fast and precise, even measure bigger capacitators is fast. Temperature measurments are fast but not completely precise but it’s not for measure your body temperature so it’s still good. Continuity test is almost imeditialy, there are faster multimeters on the market but this one is also fast. The screen is very readable and even in dark place you can read it because it have backlight. Only problem is when I tried check out wires in walls works not that well as I would be like but still works.


ANENG AN8009 is great tool for great money. If you are non pro and you are looking multimeter to 50-70$ ANENG AN8009 is briliant but it costs only 20$. It is very fast and well made tool, it’s great option for every amateur or handyman, Even electricians will appreciate this multimeter. It’s not perfect and every pros know that but for it’s price is just best multimeter and totaly worth to buy.

I bought this great multimeter here.
