yup, all uses 9-volt battery, and battery is included (no warranty for battery though  sweat.gif ). see my edited first post. DT266 is good for high-voltage and high-amperage (meaning dangerous) measurement. u just clamp on a single life or neutral wire without stripping it to measure ampere.
dt9205a have the ability to measure capacitance as well, and bigger with foldable lcd and plastic stand, but.... i'm afraid this model is not coming anytime near. will let u know when i got hold of any stock ok.  sweat.gif
as for value for money, nothing beats dt830b i'm using one myself, thrust me, very accurate.  thumbup.gif

Oh OK, thank you for the detailed explanation!

Anyway, how's the DT830B's lifespan? Can it "die" in a short period of time?

i've been using mine for more than a year. thumbup.gif the battery had been changed once, and one of the test lead wires came off once (due to my bad habit of always grabbing the meter by the test lead), this was easilly resoldered.
if use sensibly, it'll reward u with long life. don't press to hard on the lcd, and always use the correct measurement range to measure a particular voltage.

I'm a n00b in measuring voltages, so does it have a manual to guide us on what measurement range to use?

online manual for dt830b can be downloaded here:

quite simple actually, whether you're going to measure ac or dc voltage, just turn the rotary knob to the appropriate measuring range, eg. when measuring dc voltage from your computer psu, turn the rotary knob to 20V DC, this is within the measuring limit of a psu voltage which the highest is 12 volt, then simply plug the red testlead to your psu's (+) positive wire, and the black lead to the (-) negative wire. the lcd readout will provide u with a realtime voltage readout. just remember to always use the appropriate measuring range, don't, don't ever set the measuring range on the meter to measure resistance (ohm) to measure voltage. sweat.gif

Received 9205A+ today. No really tested it yet.
However, according to the manual, it will auto-off it leave unused for 15mins. I have left it for more than 1 hour and the LCD screen still shown 0.00. May I know if the auto-off features does work ?

Reason I get this model is because of the auto-off features.

Hi Petunia,
Can you check with your supplier if the auto-off function really work? And how to make it work ?
According to the website and manual it does work.
If it really doesn't work, then I would like to have full refund.
