How to Install Batteries and Shim

The magnetic signature in AAA batteries can influence compass readings. To prevent this, the Kestrel Weather Meter has a flexible plastic shim that slides in between the batteries.

  • Insert the batteries in as shown on the back door.
  • Insert shim between batteries with the clear tab out and folded over the end of the battery with the positive pole (the "bump").
  • Press the tab down over the battery with the bump through the hole.
  • Close the door tightly.

 

To note:

The only thing the shim does is prevent the batteries from moving during compass calibration.    It has no effect on the software inside the unit.
