The meter uses 1x 3-volt lithium coin cell battery (CR 2032) found in many stores.
Your battery should last for approximately 2,000 tests.
Be sure to clean the areas around slots and openings, while being careful not to get any moisture in them. You should also wipe down the entire meter surface, including the meter display.
To clean your meter:
- Ensure meter is off
- Gently wipe the meter’s surface with a soft cloth slightly dampened with 70% isopropyl alcohol
- Squeeze out any excess liquid from the cloth before you wipe the meter surface
- Get any moisture in the test strip slot
- Spray any cleaning solution directly onto the meter
- Immerse the meter in water or liquid
- Pour liquid into the meter
To replace the batteries:
- Open the battery door on the back of the meter
- With both of the "+" signs facing up, slide the new batteries under the grey tabs
- Replace the battery door and snap it closed.
Make sure you have a new 3-volt, lithium coin cell battery (CR 2032), to insert. Open the battery door on the back of the meter, remove the old battery for at least 20 seconds, and press any button on the meter. Insert the new battery with the “+” sign facing out. Snap the battery door back into place. Press the on/off button, and the meter will beep. Setup and hour are flashing on the display. If the date and time are correct, press and hold the on/off button for about 4 seconds. Release the button, and you’re done.
