Signature Lite battery change
« on: November 22, 2013, 06:08:54 PM »
My latest aquisition, the Signature Lite, didn't have the original box, hence no instruction booklet. I looked in Victorinox site and SAKWiki but didn't find any info on how to replace the led battery.

I know, it'll last some years (hopefully) before it needs replacing but I'd like to know how to do it.

There's a small hole near the blade and on the other side of the scale it seems to be a lid. Do we just push the battery with a pin through that hole and the "lid" pops on the other side?...

Yes!!! Second topic I'm sort of an expert in.
Electronic scales are my niche...

Yes... didin't even read before posting.
Opposite of this door is a tiny hole in the scale. All you need to do it take a mini driver (which is literally perfect) or a paper clip (anything) and push it through the hole. It forces out the battery and opens the door.

Change with either a cr1025 for the Red LED, or a 389/390 (same thing) for the white LED.

Here's what they say in the manual from my son's Signature Light:

"Use a metal clip to push the battery into your open hand.  Carefully insert the new battery (Panasonic CR 1025, 3V) and the cover into the knife (both should have their rounded part facing upwards).  The battery will last for about two years under normal conditions."

And next to the previous text there's a drawing from a paperclip being used in the small hole to push out the battery

Fattsgalore,  you should start a SAK electronic scale info thread with these battery questions,   a one stop shop for battery knowledge.

If I can help, let me know

I should! :D >:D
Det you might find this handy.
Teach's you how to interpret/decipher (or whatever) the Altimeter.

Had it for so long and still haven't read it. I saw math, and was like what? I need math to read the altimeter/barometer?! Never mind! I'm out of here!
Everything is calculated by atmospheric pressure or something, or whatever. Just thinking about it is applying pressure to my head.
