Smart Tweezers with Rechargeable Batteries

// January 31st, 2011 // No Comments » // Smart Tweezers Questions and Answers

Digital Multimeter Smart Tweezers comes in two models: with regular disposable batteries and with rechargeable batteries and inductive charger. If you use Smart Tweezers very often, say 2 hours of continuous use a day, and you use regular disposable batteries, your batteries will be depleted in about a month and you will then have to replace them. Eventually this will lead to damage of the thread in the plastic housing and you will need to replace the housing. If you use the rechargeable model, and you always put Smart Tweezers on the charging cradle when you do not use it, your batteries will last for about a year, even for a heavy use. The charger uses a trickle-charge charging in order to increase the battery life.

Digital Multimeter Smart Tweezers does not measure

// January 5th, 2011 // No Comments » // Smart Tweezers Tricks and Tips

There are two  most likely reasons why Digital Multimeter Smart Tweezers does not measure:

  1. The front-end circuit is burned. This happens if you apply voltage higher than allowable (1.4 Volts in Auto mode and 8 Volts in Voltage mode) or try to measure a charged capacitor with Smart Tweezers. Obviously Smart Tweezers require repair in this case.
  2. The slide-switch at the bottom-left corner of Smart Tweezers is in wrong (right-most) position. In this case the problem is easily fixable by sliding the switch into the right (left-most) position.
