In the description they state:

A 10A 75mV Shunt (not included, available in our store) must be added if the meter is used to measure current / amps; otherwise the meter will be damaged.

Just curious, the resolution on this 20V/10A model is 0.01 for both the voltage and the amperage. So the last digit is ľA. How many microamps does the circuit need to draw for the last digit to switch from a 0 to a 1?

Also, would a current shunt be necessary for such low current draw?
