Lithium batteries for improved reliability, capacity, cold-weather performance and weight.
We strongly recommend that you use only lithium batteries in your Kestrel Meter.

There are some definite benefits to using lithium batteries:
- They are lighter.
- They offer much longer life with Bluetooth applications.
- Lithium batteries offer better cold-weather performance.
- Most importantly, lithium batteries WILL NOT LEAK in storage applications, even with the low level power drain of data logging. They protect an expensive Kestrel Meter from internal damage due to inexpensive and leak-prone alkaline batteries.
