I have one more question related to my cheap Aneng SZ08 multimeter, which I've purchased recently and am discovering its capabilities. This question is related to the capacitance measurement mode.
To test the capacitance measurement function, I've used three different capacitors. The first one was 10uF (no voltage was indicated on the body.) When I touched the probes to its outputs in one way, the meter read around 10uF. When I changed the probes polarity (touched another output with another probe,) the meter read nothing.
Does the polarity matter while measuring capacitance with a multimeter?
Another capacitor was 25V 100uF. When I connected probes in one way, the meter read about 100uF, but when I've changed the polarity, it read about 190 uF. What caused that?
I also have a larger capacitor, marked 450V 4.7uF. Here, the meter reads nothing in both cases. Why did that happen?
