I can't seem to find a answer to this question elsewhere so I thought I might bother some more knowledgeable Apug members.
Is the PME-5 meter known for draining the battery when left in for four months? I try not to leave any battery in a camera or any device for too long when I'm not using it but sometimes I forget.
I left a new silver oxide PX28 in my PME-5 four months ago. When I went to use the meter I found the battery was very weak. I replaced it and all is well.
Does the meter drain the battery even when not on or do I have a unique problem?
