works. dim display. battery cover lose
on January 10, 2013
This is my second one and works just like the other one I got earlier this year.
1. This one uses AAA batteries vs the original AA battery.
2. The original had a hook and this one has a strap as pictured.
3. The battery cover is looser and the batteries are side by side vs. in a row. when you put the battery in, you have to kind of jam the cover on. When you bump the handle in just the wrong way, the pressure from the battery will pop the cover off. I ended up using tape to keep it on. You should also be careful about the cover since the spring can get caught and bent.
4. Display angle of vision is lower. You have to look at it dead on to see the weight. It's not as viable as the older version.
Overall, quality is way down. Original rating for the 1st one was 5 stars, losing 3 stars for this version.
