Old Cypres

Recommended Posts

My second Cypres recently timed out after 12 years. I opened a drawer where it's predecessor Cypres 1 was still sitting. I keep meaning to do something with it. It had expired back in ~2005. Just for fun I tried to turn it on. To my surprise, the old unit turned on, calibrated itself, and ended up with a 0 in the display--ready to jump. Pretty impressive for batteries that had to be 12 + 2 years old.

Yeah Throw it in a low pass. I have friends that still use them in the lawless lands of some South American countries, and as long as Paragear still sell batteries, they are not getting rid of them.
