Back when those meters were going for $6-$8 at trade shows and ham swaps, I was buying them in quantities of 96 or more (they came in boxes of 48, that's why the 96 price break) for a few pennies over $2. Still have a bunch of 'em left, batteries are dead tho.

Pretty much the same functionality. And I'd guess the same stuff inside.
The primary differences I see is that this ebay job has a continuity
beeper and a backlight.

this one:

is representative of one that has lots of functions. It's a lot like
the one I use much of the time. PLEASE don't hook the test leads up the
way it is shown, it won't work!

There is a huge gap in its current measuring scales, from 200ma to
10amp in one big jump, but that will probably get you by.
