Purkeys’ Milliamp Clip-On Ammeter accurately measures low current down to one milliamp. The clip-on nature of the ammeter allows technicians to detect parasitic loads in electrical systems without disconnecting the circuit.

Parasitic draw on batteries can deplete a charged battery over time, even when the vehicle is not in use. Batteries that remain discharged for long periods of time can receive internal damage and require replacing.

The Milliamp Clip-On Ammeter measures current through the magnetic field generated by current flowing through the conductor by clipping the interlocking jaws around a wire.

This easy-to-use device enables accurate and efficient diagnosis of electrical systems and assists in reducing battery depletion and damage during downtime.
