After watching Balance Charging: Can you parallel charge?, I realised that I needed a clamp meter. But which one?
I had already purchased a UNI-T UT71D DMM, see Choosing which Multimeter to buy, and I was very happy with it, so the UNI-T clamp meter seemed a logical choice. Everyone seems to have the UNI-T 210E. However, there are a myriad of other options.

However, it had no supply supply, 24V 2.2 A. By luck, I managed to find a Canon power supply brick CA-CP200 B, 24 V which supplied 1.8 A. Obviously not the correct rating, but close enough to test the printer. Continue reading Selfie Canon?
