|What kind of batteries do the Broadweigh Load Cells use?
Mantracourt Electronics recommends using Energizer® L91 Ultimate Lithium TM AA batteries.
Advantages over other batteries:
High capacity (As much as 50% more capacity than other big brand batteries). Wide temperature range.
We recommend removing batteries from units when not in use for extended periods of time. Damage due to battery leakage or corrosion is not covered under warranty.
On our rental product, we often use Duracell ProCell AA. There is a Procell Alkaline Intense Power (Engineered for long lasting performance in high-drain professional devices) and Procell Alkaline Constant Power (Designed to deliver consistent performance in low-drain professional devices). We have moved to experimenting with the Intense Power batteries and so far have has great performance/ longevity.
