SOURCE: checking batteries AA D cel with a sperry DM 350A digital multimeter

dc .... no lower then the voltage range of the highest voltage of the battery.

SOURCE: checking batteries

I assume a "DM-350a" is some kind of a digital multimeter. I Googled and found it might be a "A.W. Sperry DM350A 5 Function 17 Range Digital Multimeter" and looking at the ranges available on that meter, you can't really thest the battery "under load" the only reasonable way to test small batteries. the DC current only goes up to 200 milli amperes. A "C" or "D" size flashlight battery puts out 1 to 4 amps depending on conditions. That's 5 to 20 times the current readable by that meter. The volts on one of those batteries is probably 1.6 volts to 1.3 volts etc. If you live in the United States, I'd say go to Radio Shack and spend $5 to $15 and buy a battery tester like "Enercell Analog 9-Range Battery Checker, $14.99, Model 22-156, catalog # 22-156"
Then you and anyone in your family can read the instructions and test 8 or 9 different type batteries. Battery types: 1.5V button-cells, "AAA"/"N"/"AA"/"C"/"D", 6V, 9V, 12V, 15V and 22.5V..
This is not supposed to be an advertizement, and I have no interest in RadioShack,... but it's supposed to be instructional.

Small price, Good instruction to anyone who can read, and if anyone forgets, they can re-read. Testing a lot of batteries in a sitting goes very fast with these.

Differently, with the sperry, or any voltmeter, you'd have to select a resistor small enough to draw the current, and large enough not to overheat or burn, connect it and measure the loaded voltage drop, compare the voltage and current of the loaded battery, and compare it to that of a new battery, and a battery you might consider too weak for your application.. Voltage equals amps times resistance, and power equals amps squared times resistance... Really, buy a battery tester.

SOURCE: Does the Sperry DM-350A test

yes. But you have to change the LEADS down below. One must connect into the Omega connection at the bottom (looks like an upside down horseshoe). And the meter setting is where the arrow (?) symbol is. Touch the two leads together and it should "zero out". Now you're ready to check continuity.

SOURCE: Why does my sperry DM6450 multimeter read "connect

Are you connecting your leads to the proper terminals on the meter? There are, what, four of them? Easy to mix up.

If it still isn't working, then you might have a bad connector on your multimeter.

Changed battery on Sperry DM-5300 and now it will not power up


Try it again, with a new, tested battery.

You likely installed a "dud" (or put it in backwards?)

Good luck!

I just brought a sperry dm-350A to test the switches on my dryer I thought they would come with instructions on how to use it but it didn't. Is there a place where I can go and learn what the symbols...


Just got mine from home depot. Stick the black wire into the COM port and the red wire in the V port on the right. The red wire is the positive and the black is the ground. Touch the red tip to the positive and the black one to a ground. Turn the dial clockwise to the right and you are measuring your voltage(i left it on 200).
