    Is there an on/off switch?

    I can't locate it and would like to conserve the power when not in use. Plus, I wonder how to tell when the batteries are low.

    Answer: 
    The only Switch on the AT8010 is the Flat (relative), and (low-frequency) Roll-Off. The AT8010 does NOT feature an On/Off Switch.

    One AA Alkaline Battery should last you about 1200 Hours, or about 5 weeks straight. The only way to tell when the batteries are low is to try them with a battery tester. An affordable AA battery tester is the Amprobe BAT-200.

    Thanks!
