Let me start by saying I did a quick search under VC meter battery and didn't find any thread on it. So here goes.
I got a new VC Meter II today in the mail. After putting in the batteries, much to my surprise the meter didn't light up.
When I took the meter off the shoe the batteries spilt out! It didn't take long to recognize that the battery comparment door's "lock" is not that tight or sturdy.
Is this a known issue? I carefully slipped the meter back on, then it worked fine, but I don't want to worry every time I remove the meter about accidentally touching the door to see those little batteries fall all over the place. Should I ask for an exchange or do I live with it?
