Tutorial - Digital Caliper Battery Hack
about 3 years ago
The simplest and easiest solution to the battery life problem is to just pop out the battery
when you’re not using it to make measurements. My calipers came in a nice hinged hard-case.
I just remove and leave the battery cover off and in the case, along with the battery. When I need to make a measurement, I pop in the battery and I’m good to go. When done, I pop it out,
and everything goes back in the case. One little battery now lasts me for a couple of years.
No public wish lists :(
