> Ranges?? c´mon it cost 5 dollars
You can buy a fine meter for $5 now.
It is probably "auto-ranging". It automatically selects a range to display the value.
The "Continuity" test is for electricians. Not electronic technicians. In wires, switches, lamps, and connectors, you either have "very low" resistance (through a wire), or "very high" resistance (between two disconnected wires). If you don't know if two ends are "connected", the Continuity test gives a quick yes/no answer.
BUT in electronics, we have a LOT of "medium" connections. Resistors. They are not "very low" or "very high" resistance. We don't use the Continuity test to read resistors, we use the Ohms function and look at the number.
