Will I get a strong reliable signal to the indoor unit?
We recommend using a Lithium battery in the outdoor unit when temperatures get into the single digits. In the main display, we recommend a standard alkaline such as Duracell or Rayovac. Store brand or heavy duty (Ultra, Max, Super etc.) may over power the units and cause irregularities.
If you are speaking of the outdoor sensor, the solar panel powers only the aspirating fan while the unit is in direct sunlight. Battery power is required for all other features to work.
The batteries in most of our weather stations including should last a minimum of 8 months but it is not uncommon for them to last over a year.
We actually do not recommend rechargeable batteries, as they do not offer the proper voltage that the unit requires. Generally, a rechargeable battery is around 1.2volts when fully charged. These units require 1.5volt batteries.
I am wondering what item is powered by the AC cord mentioned in the description.
1. Is it the anemometer sending unit or the display panel?
2. Is the AC cord required to function or is it optional?
3. Is the display panel wall mountable?
Thanks for your time and efforts responding to this issue.
