Social Media WireLists59 350pxOccasionally, customers contact us because the battery reading on their  receiver (or transmitter) shows a lower voltage than when measured with a meter. Or, similarly, they report that their equipment displays low battery warnings with new batteries. There are a few explanations for this:

  1. Incorrect battery type setting
    Make sure the settings are set correctly for the battery being used: alkaline or lithium (with a time specified if using rechargeables).  If you are using lithium batteries but the setting is set at alkaline, the meter levels won’t be accurate, as the batteries discharge at different rates.
