How do I know the battery is low on the CORNET ED88T?

QI want to know how the cornet lets you know the battery is low.I had it on just now, and it went ballistic on the RF setting, then the indicator light on the right, that will show green, yellow or red, got very dim, and it seemed to shut down,Before it shut down, the readings were very high, the alarm was going off, and it did turn back on again.I changed the battery in case it was a 'low battery'.When I turned it back on, the alarm didn't go off, and it seemed to operate normally.How exactly does it tell you it has a low battery?Thanks in advance.

A - "BAT" on the upper left corner of the LCD

The meters show "BAT" on the upper left corner of the LCD, below the "ED88" text, when the battery gets too low.
After that, if the meter is still used without changing the battery, the RF reading might go to 1827 and the alarm might sound on.
After shutting the meter off for a while, it is possible that the battery will recover abit, and that you will be able to work with the meter for couple of minuets.
But them it will go crazy again.
This is very similar to what you describe.
Please see picture below.
Please change the battery, we recommend to use rechargeable.
I hope this info helps
Thanks and best regards
