1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy, 6 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: LCD Digital Temperature Humidity Meter Thermometer (Electronics)
I ordered six of these, however they arrived with a flaw. The terminals in the battery compartment have been moulded into the unit too high. What I mean is the AAA battery won't make contact with the spring at the - side and the + side is a flat bar with a dimple on it, they are mounted too close to removable cover.

To get mine to work I have had to pad out the compartment to bring the battery nearer the back of the unit to make contact with the terminals, this means you can no longer fit the cover and I have had to tape over the compartment.

Will be returning these for a refund

It does have a flaw as mentioned here, you cannot fix backplate as this pushes the battery in and it loses its contact. I ordered a second one and it is still the same. Still no bad though for £3ish.

It may sound funny, but not all AA batteries are the same... I had some generic brand ones and had problems with other devices (not this one). A branded one was ok. Basically the + terminals were not as high, which is rather strange... Would be interesting if something like this fixes your issue...

I agree with you,have similar problem but with my camera,some batteries fit while other not,I checked and there is indeed slight difference in size between branded and the ones I bought from pound shop.

This is very true what you're saying here, same goes for rechargeable batteries, they tend to be slightly thicker than normal batteries making them more difficult to insert and remove.

Rechargeable batteries swell up during the charge period making them fatter than the normal size.
