How can the battery life of the TSS Portable be improved?
Summary
TSS portable battery life
Answer
The batteries shipped with the TSS portable have a 4-hour life when fully-charged. Importantly, the batteries must be charged when the meter is switched off, otherwise they will not be fully charged even if it appears to be “fully charged.”

The batteries are 6 NiMH AA-sized batteries (catalog number LZY604), so their failure would not mean a replacement of the entire meter. They are considered a consumable component, as with our other meters, and are not grounds for replacement unless they fail outright upon first use. Other AA-sized batteries can be used, so long as they are Alkaline non-rechargable or NiMH rechargeable.
