    UNI-T seems to be common value for money clamp meter. Many of the others on the market look the same.
    i have one of the look alikes (Supercheap or Jaycar or similar) as I needed it at short notice.

    If your prepared to wait a couple of weeks, then just buy one via Ailexpress.

    but i'd look at a 6000 count model

    I have a couple of Aneng meters, all good

    Uni-T are excellent as well.

    Edit... Link to official store for the st212 https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005...004482130750.8

    hell yeah

    The Aneng cheapies i have measure the same as the 55,000 count desktop meters i have.

    Aneng and Uni-T seem to be the OEM manufacturers for a large range of meters on the market.

    After a little digging. The Toolpro from supercheap seems to be a badged Uni-T 203+ at actually a cheaper price than direct..... Uni-T have a great rep so just pop in to supercheap and do the deal. the toolpro is model 203R

    Random 203+ link for comparison A●UNI-T UT203+Digital Handheld Clamp Meter AC DC Current Tester400-600A,True RMS | eBay

    Cheers

    PS- the reality is the unless your buying a major brand name for many hundreds of dollars the ones at the bottom middle regardless of badge name likely come from one of a couple chinese manufacturers and are all essentially as good as each other and you end up shopping on price... personally I consider 6000 count meters to be the minimum these days
