Although I like option 4, the problem is that Big Clive would "take it to bits". Not really what I wanted.

I used the voltmeter and found one dead battery and one non-dead battery.
The device is a remote temperature probe. I got it working again and it told me something I already know: it's hot outside.

I don't have a voltmeter. Maybe I should get one.

Then I wouldn't have to swap out the battery with a new one to see if it works, chucking the verified-dead battery into the face of my obnoxious neighbor upstairs.

Fleeb, Harbor Freight has some very inexpensive voltmeters.  They are not high quality, probably shouldn't be trusted for important or accurate information but to get s simple reading off them they are fine.
Harbor Freight has coupons in each Sunday paper, occasionally they have a coupon for a free voltmeters with any purchase.   H.F.'s usual price is usually under $6, I picked up one for two or three dollars with a coupon.

Here are some video reviews.

If you are going to use a meter every once and a while these are fine.  If you are using it everyday invest in a better quality brand.

I might do this.

I don't often need such a test, but I might waste fewer good batteries if I can test them first before chucking them at the neighbor.

Sure, I guess not everyone needs an auto-ranging digital multimeter. Mine has batteries in it, and when I need to check the batteries in the multimeter I need another multimeter. Yo dawg, I heard you like multimeters...
