Fluke 28II battery cover and compartment
« on: December 05, 2015, 05:25:04 pm »
Hey,
So it was about time to change the batteries in my fluke 28ii. while doing it... I saw couple things that made me concern about...
first when I removed the batteries, I have noticed a hole in the battery compartment (attached photo), I saw Dave's review and I noticed there is no such hole on the one he tested... as well mine has Torx screws and not Phillips head...
and the next thing I noticed after applying the battery cover is that the cover is a little bit bulging (attached photo)..
So are those things normal?

Thanks

The Fluke 28 II also has this other potential problem ...

Should I send fluke an email about the hole in the battery compartment? Did any one noticed it on his meter?

If you bought it new from an authorized dealer, I wouldn't worry too much about it. Fluke makes revisions/changes to their multimeters all the time.

Hi, my Fluke 28II made in the USA in September 2018 does have that "hole" in the battery compartment and bulge after battery change (from Energizer Alkaline out of the box to Energizer Lithium).
