“Transistor Battery” in a multimeter

December 29, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Well, the battery in my 15-year-old multimeter has finally died. I dutifully opened up the case, and found inside….

A 9V “transistor” battery

Now… I would expect that sensitive devices like a multimeter might need a special power source, but I have no idea what a “transistor battery” is. Googling provides no clues. What clues I can deduce suggests multimeters just take “normal” batteries (ie. PP3 alkaline type). But it’s a rare enough request that I’m cautious I could be wrong.
