Likewise, does a multimeter need a battery?

If your multimeter is digital, it will require a small battery to operate. If it is analog, it does not need a battery to measure voltage. Some digital multimeters are autoranging. An autoranging meter has only a few selector switch (dial) positions.

Furthermore, how do you charge a digital multimeter? Follow the procedures below to charge the battery:

  1. Remove the test leads from the multimeter.
  2. Turn the rotary switch to the. NEVER rotate the rotary switch while the battery is being charged.

  2. Touch the negative (black) battery terminal with the negative (black) meter probe.
  3. Touch the positive (red) battery terminal with the positive (red) meter probe.

What do the symbols on a multimeter mean?

If you need to measure alternating current in a circuit, different multimeters have different symbols to measure it (and the corresponding voltage), usually "ACA" and "ACV," or "A" and "V" with a squiggly line (~) next to or above them.
