    yup, analogs kung di ka particular sa read-out...and sakit ng digital is kung mahina na ung battery di na accurate ung display nya...

    i'm happy with my digital tester (wheeler) yata ang brand, nabili ko sa deeco raon..
    you can get an exact readout of volts and ohms..

    next na gusto ko i-try eh yung clamp meter, medyo mahal at nasa 2K pataas..

    i have a sanwa digital meter. ang kagandahan ng digital, kahit baligtad ang polarity, nababasa pa rin. sa analog kasi, kung baligtad ang polarity, pabaligtad din ang palo ng needle, baka masira pa.

    both are durable. depends on the user. I would choose digital for a more precise readings. Most digital testers are equipped with a buzzer to denote continuity set in this mode. Digital testers are similar to calculators which when left idle for 6 mins, it automatically sets off which eventually prolongs battery life.

    I'd say digitals are more durable

    analogs are obsolete

    believe you me, may nabili ako sa mga tyangge, digital VOM for P100! and it works and it's accurate naman. nga lang, di sya automatic shutoff so kung maiwan bukas, drain ang baterya mo (a 9V square battery). Meron din yung mini analog VOM na P90 lang. Medyo pwede ng pagtyagaan kung spot checking lang voltages at resistances. durability wise, same lang siguro, depends on your care. Sensitive nga lang yung spring mechanism ng analog meters.

    i prefer digital muliti tester..downside lang nito pag measure ng capacitance..
    mag hihintay ka pa not unlike analog .kita mo ang needle .mabilis bumabalikor kita agad

    Digital multitesters nowadays have an auto-calibration feature. When the battery becomes weak resulting to inaccurate readings, it will warn you to change the batteries.

    Unlike kung analog multitesters, kapag mahina na yung battery, sige pa rin ang palo kahit mali-mali na yung reading.

    kahit alin sa dalawa ok lang. for general electrical/electronic use naman. pero kung precision electronics ang pang-gagamitan sa digital na ako.
