My comment was addressed to 'rchibnik', not you :-). I'd hate to see someone let the magic smoke out of their meter. My Fluke bench unit is quite tolerant of such abuse, but I doubt the low-end units are as well protected.
I am also seeing that quiescent 9.5K reading on the Line6 battery. If UPS ever manages to get my JTV-69 back to me, I'll dig in and try to figure out whether that's really just a simple R between those terminals or, as I more suspect, the port impedence of some sort of crypto based protection system (typical of camcorder packs, toner cartridges, etc.).
