Question

Hi Im looking to buy a ESR METER,  a meter to test a capacitor while its still in the circuit. Are there any inexpensive ones that you would recommend. Thank you Ken

Answer
Don't know what you mean by "inexpensive" nor what type of electronic circuits you will be testing but if you search amazon.com you can find them from $19.99 and up.

Let me suggest this page to look over the range of testers:

You can find a similar array of in circuit testers on eBay ranging from under $40 to much higher.

Hope this helps.
