I have a 330 and it has the batt voltage as the 396 does, but tell me this. With 3 1.2 volt AA batts, how can the voltage EVER be over 3.6 volts. Mine will start out at 4.5 volts sometimes and go into low batt alert at 3.5. What is it measuring?

I get the same thing, and it leaves me puzzled as well. But yet when it's plugged into the wall, it reads 0.00??

Batteries always give more than the rating when they are full. If they started out at 1.2, as soon as they start to give out power they'd be below 1.2 and therefore useless.

Freshly charged NiMH cells can hit about 1.5 volts per cell. That totals 4.5V

Because you have your internal switch set to ALKALINE - the batteries are disconnected.

The voltage normally associated with a given battery is called nominal. It's basically a value used when designing circuits, kind of a reference value. New or freshly charged cells always have slightly higher voltages, whereas the voltages at the end of useful charge is always lower.
