Default low cost dc clamp meter

Hey guys, I wanted to clamp my current amp and alternator before I got a higher amperage although but I need a clamp meter.
I've seen some low price ac/dc ones on amazon but any of here know of a proven accurate one?

Now that I've turned up the gain on my ed nine.1 I've seen my voltage drop to 13.0v while driving and my resting voltage after a few hours is about 12.3v

I can understand budget. what I meant was, buying a cheap one but its not accurate VS buy a cheap one and replacing it with an accurate one , its more costly
