My old one died so I'm in the market for another. Does anyone have any recommendations for an analog unit that has a 20 volt scale?

I just replaced my analog meter. Radio Shack has a variety of choices. I don't recall if there was a 20V scale model available. Dance

Thanks Bob. The only reason I saw a need for the 20v scale was it's difficult to tell 12v from 14 v on a 50v scale. Anyone else have any suggestions?

Yup. Google 'multimeter analog' then take your pick. Rolling Eyes Twisted Evil

I've gotten pretty good at researching stuff but I never could come up with a multimeter that had a range sutiable for automotive use. All the analogs I found had the 10v or the 50v range. It's difficult to tell 12 from 14 volt on that scale.

Any more suggestions other than google it Rolling Eyes Razz

EDIT: I like an analog because it's easier to read resistance on it (at least I think so and that makes it true Smile)

Here's one at Radio Shack for $22 that includes a DC 25 volt range http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2999093
