dave@ratcliffe.org The specs indicate the internal battery is good for 2 hours from full charge. For work on battery past that time any powerbank supplying 5v dc at at least 500mA (.5amp) would be sufficient. Conceivably a typical powerbank would last for at least 8-10 hours.

dave@ratcliffe.org If you received a 1.005x loupe (now THAT'S a weird number) then ask for a replacement. I ordered a 20x and that's what I received.

dave@ratcliffe.org .5 mHz is 500kHz. It should read that low, but I have not benchmarked it for accuracy that low yet.

dave@ratcliffe.org The TYPE C3.0 is what you want. If you hover your mouse over the small picture where you choose your option, the picture on the left will change to show what you are selecting. TYPE C3.0 shows 5 USB Type A jacks on the plate. For clarity, this is the RIGHT selection of the 2 shown.

dave@ratcliffe.org You can short the leads of a capacitor together to discharge them. A screwdriver between the leads of an electrolytic is sufficient to do the job, but a sets of clip leads will also do. CAUTION! if testing large caps be careful. They can knock you on your backside until they are discharged. The waiting time for discharge to occur is practically zero.
