I (absolute newbie) am working on my equipment - at the moment I'm looking for a digital multimeter. My idea was to find something not too expensive with automatic range selection (to avoid accidenatlly frying it), that is capable of taking measures in the needed range with an acceptable accuracy and performing some tests.
The problem is, that I have almost no experience and thus no idea, which range is really needed. My guess would be:
- DC-Voltage in mV and V
- electric current in mA and A
- electrical resistance in mΩ and Ω
- cuntinuity testing
- diode testing
- capacity testing

Would that fit?

You won't fry a multimeter by selecting the wrong range, just get a different reading. Literally any multimeter is fine, there's even some great looking digital, auto range meters on AliExpress and gearbest
