    The cheap Mastech/Centech Harbor Freight meter does this along with the BK precision 2709B if you want to get a really nice meter.

    I have a Fluke for voltage only and another meter for current; I like to keep them separate as I may be in the wrong mode. The ideal solution is not to be fatigued, but real life does not always comply. This guy illustrates the problem https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q...5&&FORM=VRDGAR at time 3:07

    Perhaps a good solution is a self resetting fuse; I have one digital multi-meter of this type.

    www.circuitspecialists.com often have free multi-meters with purchases over $50, so my collection has grown over the years. My favorite product is their 5 amp variac so I can run bedroom fans in silent mode (triac based speed controls tend to make the motor buzz). https://www.circuitspecialists.com/v...l_display.html
