Fuse protection
Does it have a fuse inside ?
Because the last tester I buyed here has burned and I had to take out battery with emergency to avoid degassing or explosion.

Last one I bought was supposed to have short circuit protection too, but it didn't.
Have you opened it to look inside ?

The short circuit protection is only for the atty, an internal fault wouldn't be protected. I doubt very much that this unit has a fuse though. If you are using it purely as an ohm reader you might be able to use a protected battery, but that won't work if you use it for coil burning.

What sort of battery were you using when the previous one overloaded, and what were you doing at the time?
