I like this unit when it works. I also experienced the same low battery and LO error as many others. With fresh battery, the unit stopped working properly after only a few times. It appears that the unit draws too much current from the CR2032 battery - especially when used with setting a torque value and triggering red LED and alarm. When red LED and alarm sounds the device displays LO and low battery symbol and stops working. Even when I set it to max torque and only used it to measure my torque wrenches, it still does same thing after about 6-10 uses in a row. Measured battery to be about 2.7 V. Returned for a second unit -- same thing happened. It appears the CR2032 battery does not have enough capacity for the normal device operation. I Contacted customer service and they stated that the device has an issue with the LO message and there has been no design change to correct this. Too bad - otherwise it seems to work well.
