Tutorial - Digital Caliper Battery Hack
about 9 years ago
I have had a Mititoyo caliper for about 15 years, model Absolute Digimatic CD-6"CP.
I have replaced the battery twice in that time, and I use it every day, often forgetting to turn it off, it doesn't have an auto-off.
I suspect these battery-eating devices you guys are talkng about are the cheap Chinese variety.
As they always say - you get what you pay for.
