How many volts can a multimeter read?

  • #1
I have only tested mine (it is a cheap one $20) it on a 9V battery, what is the limit?

My multimeter starts from 1000V DC then 200,20, 2000m,200m.....

I am a noob with this so sorry if I don't make sense

I'm afraid that different multimeters have different scales. Your meter should have an owners manual. What does that say?

Sounds from the description like it has the scale printed on it and we already know the answer!
