Over at Amazon, this Extech electrical test kit, MN24-KIT, is on sale for $20. Its regular price looks to be $31 to $40.
While none of these tools are top of the line or exceptionally well-featured, they look to be decent starter tools for users who are first starting out with basic troubleshooting.
The kit includes a MN24 digital multimeter with manual range selection, a 40130 non-contact AC voltage detector, and an ET15 receptacle tester.
Personally, I prefer auto-ranging meters and receptacle testers with GFCI testing functionality. Still, it’s hard to argue with the value – $20 is a great price for what you get.

I have not used these tools specifically, but own a couple of Extech tools that I have had good experiences with.
If you’ve got an experienced opinion, would recommend this starter set to homeowners and novices, or something else? If you ask me, it’s a little too basic for apprentices.
