18650 cell voltage 6.4V
#11
"1.5V AAA battery and that returned 1.7V" - that's not fine at all. 1.5V brand new come charged only up to 1.6V, so it shows more. Clearly voltmeter problem.

I saw the battery change reply after answering.

Or… you just found a source for the best damn AAA batteries ever made.

energizer lithiums can start over 1.8
the newer duracell  start at 1.7.
those are a Nickel oxyhydroxide

You can have AAAs with up to 1.8V and 1.6V nominal. They are based on good 100-year old NiZn technology. Same goes for AAs.

I am aware gentlemen… was just a joke, but I do appreciate the insight.  One could also reference the label to make sure we don’t have a “special cell”

Again, this is why #multiple meters.

And be sure that you have it on DC...a friend of mine was camping and measured his trailer battery, it supposed to be 12v ish...
He was measuring 26.4v....after some conversation and a photo sended i saw his meter was on AC.....
But its a very wise idea to get a very good meter, at least one, you need to check the ir also, i would advise the yr1030.
From time to time check the battery in your meter(s)
I can not and will not do, without a yr1030 anymore.

Btw my old (1970) analog meter from the ussr! was still pretty accurate.
Selling everything at marketplace.
