Why the $3 Voltmeter Cannot Work With Inline Resistance

Started by Bret Cahill April 17, 2022
The lowest voltage it can measure is what powers the LED display so something must be acting like a DC to DC converter set at the display voltage.

Additional resistance in series lowers the current too much to power the display.

It only works on an ideal voltage source.
