Thanks Robot. I took it to work and tested with my DVOM...12.13 volts. Hereís the weird part...took it home,put it in the machine and it fired right up. Huh? Is there a logic chip in the battery that somehow didnít recognize a request for voltage? Iíve run the machine several times after that...no issue whatsoever. Could hooking the meter to it cause it to ďwake upĒ? Joe at RNB didnít have a clue,he was as baffled as I was. I was very worried at first,I thought my Explorer croaked. Then I was worried that the battery had croaked! It is without a doubt one of the 2 best things Iíve ever gotten for a detector,it is downright awesome!
Thanks for the thoughts,Iíll post back if anything else occurs.

Kevin
