Something that is likely to be accurate.  It will cost more than $5.

I have a Fluke 112.  I got it because we had one at work and I liked it.  
It's old enough that they don't make them any more.  I'm not sure what I 
would get today.

The size of the drop resistor gets scaled by the current range.  The question 
is what is the lowest voltage the meter can read full scale.  Typical numbers 
are 200 mV.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
