Witsend Made it to level 2!  Looks like you are on your way to becoming famous


Battery for M2
So I built a NiMh battery pack from Harbor Freight rechargeables and Radio Shack AA battery holders.
Turned out 2 of the stock cells in battery pack were junk. I now have 2 sets of batteries, and desktop charger.
since HF is 2 doors down I am gonna stock up on rechargeables. Besides i do have lots of tools that use batteries!
So far it seems to work, guess i need to start building my waveform database again till i get Vantage Pro back.

I saw portable 12V Lithium ion battery that has a 5v USB output that if you stripped and modified a USB cable wires to properly attach + and - internally maybe be sufficient gauge to power that meter for about $33 that would last longer than 3 or 4 AA Ni -Cad ones. Good job bottom feeding though.
I Don't like to spend more than $50 and and an hour of my time to get any fancy meter working again when I can get a new Cent Check Deluxe one at Port Cargo that I should be able to read my IQ in Luminens.LOL
As for collecting waveforms , maybe instead, you can buy a one month individual IATN premium member ship for $19 and search the wave form library over there.

MonzaRacer Congratulations!  Your peers have given you enough reputation to put you into the fist level!

Default well

so I got 4 AA nimh batteries,two AA holders and used 9v connectors, tied it into old battery harness. Turns out half original batt pack was bad.
Anyway it even turns out the meter still charges batteries so all is good. It runs for about 2.5 to 3 hrs.
And thats the lower capacity batteries, still have 4 of higher capacity set also.
I still havent gotten Vantage Pro back yet, but so far Vantage mt2400 and M2 seem to serve well.
I also just ordered the charge cradle and will start on my diag set up on my tool box.
