Fluke 87V Max and NiMH batteries ?
« on: October 11, 2020, 01:20:26 pm »
Just wanted to check if someone has tested the Fluke 87V Max multimeter with NiMH rechargeable batteries or do you get the "bAT" warning with these ?
Tried to google it and found only one person who commented with a Fluke 28-II where it didn't work.
Would prefer if anyone with a Fluke 87V Max could test and report back as there could have been small adjustments on the newer board revisions compared to the 28-II..
Even better if someone could check at which voltage the "bAT" warning triggers.

      My Fluke 189, with the C-Cell adapter works very well on sub-C NiMH batts.  I recently converted so I don't know their longevity yet :-DMM

Fluke 28 II works form with IKEA rechargeable batteries, no low battery indicator after two weeks.
She should be almost identical to Max.

I should add that rechargeable batteries are a bit too big for battery compartment,case is a bit bent, so it may be not water resistant, I will be not testing this :)

Just got the Fluke 87V Max.

IKEA AA NiMH rechargeable batteries was tested and they work. The batteries are not too big and fits the battery compartment without problems.
