You certainly like to put lots of different tips to your lips, Skyray.

RE: What did you get today?
Cause they can SR.

23A is an unusual one for a multimeter, very nearly all of them use those little brick 9V jobs (PP3, 6LR61, 1604A) which are often a can round 6 AAAA cells.

I've seen AAs (Which I far prefer) once or twice, but never a 23A (which is usually a stack of eight LR932 button cells shrink wrapped together).

And don't get me started on naming them, I used to work in a camera shop and the battery equivalents book was in constant use.

I'm hoping there will be a nice shiny new Galaxies RDTA waiting for me when I get home.

I've promised the free one I got for review to a patient.

I've seen them used in two meters so far one i own and one i got for someone else this latest one is a DT83B meter just a cheap and nasty one lol Through as you say most are those square 9v batteries, Btw i see they have 4 names for those batteries but i won't list them Sarcastic_hand

There wasn't. But there was a red card. I'll pick it up on the way to work tomorrow. The PO is between my house and my work, maybe adding 200 yards to my journey.

That was very severe - I would have thought a yellow card would have been enough punishment for not being there.[Image: tongue.gif]

RE: What did you get today?
My two new RDA's are going to have to wait until tomorrow to be altered for squonking - I have been far too busy with the dripping version this afternoon[Image: tongue.gif]. They are both really easy to build on and I have built two coils to fit once I change the connecting pin to squonk mode - this will be my first job tomorrow.[Image: smile.gif]
