Fluke 233 Remote Display Multimeter Battery Issue

One of the coolest DMM on the market:

This is a great DMM, but mine has a problem: the battery life!

Leaving the meter in OFF state, after some weeks, all the batteries are dead.  Happened 4 times with different batteries.

It seems that the power-off state consumption is high and approximately the same value for both units.

Some guys from Element 14 are stating that is a flaw with the meters with s/n under 138xxx:

One great tool way under the 1000 limit. The device combines the a +-2 centigrade precise spot thermometer with a small thermal imager and provides a precise heat map on a microSD.

The SmartView analysis and reporting PC software makes reporting easy using great report templates.

Distrelec lists it under 700 euro(VAT excluded).

Quick Specs:

  • Range: -10 °C to +250 °C (14 °F to 482 °F)
  • Accuracy: ±2°C or ±2% of reading in °C, whichever is the greater (at 25 °C nominal) as tested
  • Image capture freq.: 8 Hz
  • IR Spectral Band: 6.5 µm to 14 µm
  • FoV: 20° X 20°
  • Operating Conditions: -10 °C to +45 °C (14 °F to 113 °F) with 10 % to 90 % non-condensing humidity
