Don't Burn Your Equipment - Get Yourself a Multimeter

Wanted to test if batteries / goldcaps I was using were charged. Since I had no suitable equipment for it, I just throwed in a LED to test the power. Unfortunately the voltage of the battery was far above the voltage-capacity the LED I was using. I so trashed my led, that was part of another equippment, that is now unusable. The value of this accident cost me the same like a simple multimeter cost, that simply does this tasks at a professional level.

This is school-wisdom indeed, but since I am still a beginner... Just get yourself a multimeter.
