  1. That link is interesting because it seems to confirm my suspicion that switching a calliper off only blanks the display and that the device is still live and still using the battery to a lesser extent. Edited to add: Just checked my callipers and the better quality one does say use an SR44 but the cheaper one says LR44 so your info is spot on by the look of it. Roger
  2. Generally the batteries do last a long time in both my vernier callipers BUT the latest one is a type that switches itself on when the vernier is opened by only a fraction of a mm. I have also just experimented with it, to compare with the much older version which dos not switch itself on when the vernier is opened, and I found that the slightest vibration that might occur putting the calliper back in the box or even a slight shake as you put the box away switched it back on. Perhaps that is the cause which can be eliminated by tightening the calliper locking screw before putting it away. One other thought, but I have no knowledge of this, but with the type that switches itself on by opening the calliper could the system be slightly live at all times to detect calliper movement in order to switch the display on, hence the shorter battery life (bit like keyless car fob system)?

  11. Yes, that was the time that the club booked some of the very first moorings available at the rally only to find that we were moored as far from the show as possible whereas others who had only booked a few weeks before were centrally moored.............hhmmmm. Yep, Albion moored bank-side and all the other riff-raff breasted up. ? Roger
