I am using a BK Precision 2709B multimeter and attempting to measure the current of a device that runs off of a ~3.7V battery. The device boots up, initializes and then goes into its lower power state.
If I use the 10A setting, my device boots up just fine but I need to measure uA or mA. When I attempt to use the mA setting, the device attempts to boot and then continuously reboots. Its not able to finish its initialization process before it cuts off. The current reading on the meter is ~30mA before the device cuts off and attempts to boot up again. The meter says 400mA max, so it doesn't seem like it is over the maximum allowed current for the mA setting.
Is there anything I can do to get past the initialization so I can measure the lower power state?
