Default Re: Thoughts on this ESR meter

I don't have any supercapacitors in my spare parts box, but do have 0.3F, 0.22F, and ~100mF capacitors. Also a bunch of ones from 10mF to 56mF; at least the 6.8mF, 10mF, 27mF are within that range.

These >50mF caps are quite large... they're all on the order of a half liter bottle. I just wonder how long it takes for it to measure capacitance on these big capacitors...

My portable DMM already takes forever to measure 100F capacitors, and 0.22F takes a while on my Sencore... annoying...

I know EVERYONE wants an ESR meter, but I still use my EICO 950B, can test caps for leakage at up to 450 volts! ESR meter can't do that!
