    I have a 20odd year old Fluke 77 and I think I have replaced the battery
    (9volt) once or twice in that time.
    Why would you need any more energy than that, kinetic or not?

    I wonder what kind of battery the solar powered rechargable uses.

    All the rechargable batteries I've ever had have died sooner than a
    typical primary cell battery would have in this application.

  3. Bingo, it's a useless concept.
    Good auto power off and long battery life in a meter is not rocket science.

    Unless its a marketing / gimick ploy. But I'm sure Jaycar wouldn't venture
    into that arena.

  6. And why do they seem to always have an "off" key?

    Maybe they know something we don't. :)

    Good question. Maybe dumb people want that? Either on customer or
    manufacturer side...

    My old solar powered Casio FX-991 only has an "on" key which works as
    a reset, in case the calc has hanged due to insufficient light... Got
    me through high school, although I remember one physics exam when
    there was a power outage. Good thing it was short, otherwise I
    would've been screwed... The calculator really doesn't work in dim
    light, but OK in normal lightning.
  9. Gees, Phil, you've found you sense of humour. :)
