    \$\begingroup\$ @Transistor And it is quite a short manual! With things like "The 20A range is not protected by a fuse and has a maximum 10A continuous current rating." that should be in read, blinking and with a loud buzzer... ;) \$\endgroup\$ – vangelo Jul 11 '19 at 11:11

Use the 200m setting from the orange section with an A with a solid and dotted bar above. You can find the manual for the meter here.

  • \$\begingroup\$ mA. Please take some time to read the linked manual. You can damage your device by connecting it wrongly. \$\endgroup\$ – vangelo Jul 11 '19 at 11:05
