I've seen a few rip-offs in my time but this really takes the biscuit. The tube contains 4 AAA batteries. There is a terminal on one end and a push fit cap on the other which comes off quite easily with a couple of pipe wrenches. Words fail me to express the utter contempt that I have for the type of organisation that trades like this.

Was going to buy but like a previous reviewer said, this contains 4 AAA batteries. Look on Utube for instructions on how to get the 15mm plumbers end cap off. Took me 3 minutes to change the batteries inside.

Anyone who can put batteries into a torch can do this. It is a 5 min job. The term 'power tube' is deliberately used to mystify and intimidate people. The manufacturers would earn a lot of brownie points if they put a screw top on the copper tube and left instructions on how to change the batteries.

Take a hammer, flat bladed screwdriver and place old one in a vice. Tap carefully around the edge of the cap for about 3 mins and remove. Replace 4 AAA batteries and place cap back on. Job Done for a fraction of the cost of this!

It's so old the batteries in it were dead so just prised top off old one and put new batteries in it and works perfect, waste of £40 should have listened to the rest of the comments. They should be stopped from selling old stock Amazon. Tip use ring spanner once u have started to prise it off and I'm a woman

Thanks to all of the other reviews I read, I didn't press the button to order a new part, but did as the reviews said and replace the batteries, I did have the "r" reset button for an hour then the "c " error message which I imagine means connection, then I left it alone and forgot about it for a few hours and now it works again and I have a reading. Love amazon reviews. Thankyou for all taking time to write such reviews, I shall make an effort in future to do the same

As others have commented tis is merely a copper tube with a few inexpensive batteries inside. All in all less than a couple of pounds to make.

At £40+ it is well, unbelievable.
