I used to work for John Fluke Mfg. Co., Inc. who make the voltmeters most of you have in your toolbox. I have a hardmodel (manufacturing sample) Fluke 77 meter (which has since become the Flue 73 to make room for a unit with more features. This meter still has the same batteries in it as when it was new, and the same test leads.

Interestingly enough, Fluke was bought by the giant conglomerate Danaher Corp., who made the durable test leads for Fluke meters. Tektronix, makers of the oscilloscope you probably have on your bench, was also bought by Danaher and folded into Fluke, so these two one-time competitors are now divisions of the same company.
