Probe Types

There are many different types of probes available for multimeters. Here are a few of our favorites:

  • Banana to Alligator Clips : These are great cables for connecting to large wires or pins on a breadboard. Good for performing longer term tests where you don’t have to have to hold the probes in place while you manipulate a circuit.
  • Banana to IC Hook : IC hooks work well on smaller ICs and legs of ICs.
  • Banana to Tweezers : Tweezers are handy if you are needing to test SMD components.
  • Banana to Test Probes : If you ever break a probe, they are cheap to replace!
