Any thoughts on how to extend the life of the battery. I keep this in a bag out of site/out of mind until I need it, but beeps and goes off ALL THE TIME. I've tried to tape cardboard to the back and that falls off or still beeps. Not a fan of this "moisture meter" at all, but I just want to save replacing the battery every week or so.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Save your money Excited to use my new toy I tried it out immediately. I have some wood from a storm a few years ago that was taken to a mill, cut but not professionally dried. I have been letting it sit in my garage in the hope that it will dry and be workable. So i tested this wood with my new moisture meter. It proved to be erratic. It was also inconsistent. It came up with different moisture content in the same place with several tests. For me this was a big disappointment. I would not recommend this item as I deem it useless and have stored it in my tool cabinet as far in the back as possible so it is out of site.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not consistent seems to work pretty well but when you measure the same spot right away you may get a different reading so I don't really know how accurate it is. I know more complicated meters are more money but this still cost 100

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Digital Moisture Meter Works well for wood, carpet, drywall, and paper. Does not work on concrete or block.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Iffy results Started checking in places I thought I might have a problem and got nice low readings, then checked an area where I knew there was an issue and got a high reading. Re-checked the first areas and they now show a high reading. Tested again in the morning and the readings were even higher, the next day about in between the first and second tests, then high readings, then near low readings. Doesn't seem to be consistent or give a reading I would trust.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No good We used this meter on wood joists under a house, and it read over 70% moisture. So I immediately knew that this was strange, so my colleague got his old school one, and it read 18%. Being that it was a little moist under the house, I expected to see some moisture, but if it were 70%, it would crumble! So obviously is was way off. We tried it on other surfaces to see if it was just a fluke, and it still showed highly unlikely numbers (like on a dry wall, it read 99.99%...really? My wall is made of water?) I would not recommend this product to anyone looking for precise measurements.
