Smallest capacitor that Blue ESR meter will accurately test


Joined Nov 22, 2017
Does anyone know the lowest value capacitor that the Blue ESR meter can reliably test?
Blue ESR Features:
  • Supplied in kit form with Instructions & manual online
  • Two foot leads made with super flexible test lead wire with 4mm banana plugs
  • Test lead resistance compensation
  • Resistance measurements from 0.01 Ohm to 10 Ohm.
  • Automatic power off when reading is unchanged for 3 minutes
  • Low battery voltage warning
  • Easy-to-read, high brightness 0.5 inch (13mm) piercing blue LED display
  • Easy to read chart of good capacitor ESRs on the front panel with capacitor voltage values from 10V-450V, 1->10,000uF capacitance
  • Test ESR on polarized and non-polarized capacitors with the value of >1 uF
  • Measures ESR for capacitors in circuit, ideal for PCB level de-bug
  • Can also be used to test the low resistance grounding of ANSI/ESD S20.20, ANSI/ESD S6.1, ESD TR20.20 and compliance verification for grounding systems
  • Detection of shorts on PCB's and shorted coils in transformers
  • Assess health for alkaline and rechargeable batteries
  • Operational down to 5.5v battery voltage, maximizes battery life
  • Kits made in Silicon Valley California, USA
