Don't laugh but I have to start somewhere! I am trying to figure out
how to set my digital ampmeter. Whats throwing me off is the various
settings. Im not sure where to set the dial. I have 500, 200, 20,
2000m and 200m.
Anyway I am trying to determine if my car has a drain on my battery. I
read that the acceptable draw on the battery is around 50milliamps,
digital will be .050amps.
I understand that the 500, 200 & 20 is some type of multiplier.
When I set the digital ampmeter to 20 I get a reading of 12.23.
This seem like a lot compared to the .050amps im supposed to get!
But then when I set the dial to 500 the display shows 022, this seems
closer but doesnt say .022, Im confused at this point.
My question, where do I set the dial to determine the .050amps?
