I just got a cheap digital multimeter and find it rather fun to play with. I am able to successfully test the voltage of some Sanyo AA Nimh's I have. They are stated at 1.2V, and off the charger they test around 1.39V.
I also want to check the capacity, as it claims to be 2500mah. I'm not quite sure what to switch the multimeter to. I switched it to the "10A" settings, which I assume is measuring current. That gives me a value of 11.00 usually with these batteries.
Is this right? Or am I doing this wrong?
