Now I know why there's never any when I go to buy one :(
#5
Cold, why? Cheaper where? I'd love to know as I quite fancy one of these.
#6
any good ?
#7
I'd like one but cheaper. My Tchibo one (without wind speed) lost the function of its outdoor thermometer transmitter last winter.

All them buttons make it look complicated to use. If this was 1/2 price, as one of them gadgets which are nice for a while, I would purchase but at £40 seems a bit much, especially for LIDL, hopefully the price will reduce later
#9
great buy and extremely hot!

is it more accurate than bbc weather?

I think even deep fat fryers are more accurate than the BBC's weather!

Complicated is goooood X) It does a lot for £39.99. Look around for what you get for half that.

Learn to read a proper Barometer and you will never need to listen to BBC weather ever again!

So are you saying that just measuring variations in local air pressure is better than the Met Office's model with all those other inputs?
#16
How many buttons and measurements do you need to tell you that - as per ususal - the weather is crap and is likely to remain that way until we get our annual two-hour window of sunshine one afternoon in July?

If you're an amateur meteorologist then this might have some appeal, I suppose.

I had one of these a couple of years ago for Christmas, and liked it until - ironically - the wind blew the wind/temperature unit over, which broke it.

Once it is set up you don't really need to worry about the buttons (there's also three or four switches and buttons on the back as well). All three pieces run off batteries, but the main unit can be plugged in using a transformer, and the rain and wind units use 2x AA batteries which for me lasted about 4-6 months.

Obviously if you only want to know what the outside temperature is then this is overkill, but if you like to know a bit more info then I'd recommend it - just make sure you attach the wind unit properly :P
#18
Might be interesting if it's got a USB output and software which will send the data to the PC.

Anyone know if it has?

Dear Santa and God

I have been a really good boy this year and I would love one of these units (just to add to the other 4 similar units I already have) but my wife will clobber me if I purchase it, not just because of the price but because I don't need another one but please it is wireless and I don't have a wireless on and I don't have a direction for the wind either so could you please see if you an give me one ...... I also have to steer well clear of all Lidl stores until the stock is gone otherwise I WILL buy one....

Life is so cruel but the wife is worse.... how could I get one of these without her knowing? :)

Don't think so, you would have to get the Oregon one for that and then you are looking at about £150 for that type of unit.... they do look nice but for that much money?.....

the rain and wind units use 2x AA batteries

What a disappointingly ridiculous design. For a wind wane to have reasonable accuracy it must to be bolted high up a mast to be away from obstacles for obvious reason. Which makes having to change batteries completely impractical. A wind unit needs to be wired or maybe solar powered.

£39.99 won't get you that though so there is nothing wrong with the design for the price.

You could have it on a mast and just take the mast down (from the base) to replace batteries? I think this looks good, going to get my Dad one for chrimbo.

You could always just wire up power yourself, or add extra capacity by putting more cells in series.

Warning, if you add cells in series you will increase the voltage which would be quite likely to kill it.
#39
Opps, I do know what I am talking about - I meant to type parallel.

Actually I remember actually typing that... :/
#40
Fair enough but connecting cells in parallel has its own hazards. A more reliable modification to increase capacity would be to substitute the 2x AA cells with 2x D.
