Thanks Lefty... yep I was going to put regulation in quotes for that reason....
Now that I have a nice meter that measures current, I can use it in conjunction with my old one to set up a little experiment to measure the simultaneous currents through and voltage drops across (eg) LEDs and resistors in series and verify all this stuff I read about!
One hint on measuring current with your new fluke. Right after you take a current measurement and at that time
change the meter leads back to the voltage position. The reason is if you leave them in the current position and the next day go to make a quick voltage reading you will set the function switch but more times then not you won't think about the meter lead position and as soon as you place the leads across a voltage source, pop goes the current protection fuse and those suckers get expensive when having to replace again and again just because of a brain fart. My fluke model 87 DMM make a beeping noise if the function switch is in volts position but the meter lead is in the current jack, but my fluke model 45 bench meter doesn't and not sure what your new one does?
Any time your taking current measurements pretend you are out hunting bear with only a Bowie knife, keep alert.
