VOLTCRAFT GDM704
« on: February 11, 2018, 08:20:18 am »
Hello everyone! I have a high-end multimeter VOLTCRAFT GDM 704. It is functional, but I found that the latter quickly discharges the batteries (even with new batteries). It consumes 150mA when it works. Could someone tell me if this measured consumption is normal or excessive ?? Thanks for your help! :phew:

Dismal battery life seems normal for this model.  See

I already have a hand-multimeter but this piece of shit only got a usage time of <3h until the batteries are empty.

Hello; weird, because even when the batteries are discharged, the battery indicator indicates that the battery is full, and no indication "low battery" .... What is the explanation ?? :palm:
