Been having probs with it the last couple of weeks so after a second opinion, the batteries have been running flat. I assumed I'd left it on and killed them so got some expensive new rechargable Ni-MH batteries for it. Fully charged the self test showed 8v (obviously). The next morning it reads 7.2V (without the unit being used in between). Next day it reads 7.0V and then that evening it wouldn't turn on again. I fully recharged again yesterday and after 2 uses the batteries were still fine, then this morning it's on 6.2V. It doesn't seem to be the tests draining it, more something when it's turned off.

Any ideas what could be draining this? It's definitely not being left on each time as I've been very careful, even leaving it out of the box so the button couldn't get knocked. This is my second 1652 in as many weeks so I'm not very impressed!!! If anyone has one of these how long do you batteries last?

Hope it's not a return to fluke problem :(
