This is the one occasion that I never use rechargeable batteries, weather sensors really need the full 1.5v batteries. And where you have them in exposed locations, lithiums are more reliable in the cold.
Wow, no wonder the screen bezel is so thick: - even the printed manufacturer logo re-locates itself to the lowest section of bezel when the indoor unit is rotated. That must be an industry-first. How kool is that !

Haven't got a clue what this is for. Only came because it was listed by someone called KatsudonVince. And as I love KatsuDon, OyakoDon, etc I have to give heat!
Has anyone actually got one of them and how reliable and how good are they?
These are cheaper on Banggood and Gearbest if you're happy to wait a few weeks.
Had one, returned it. The colour display can only be seen if you look directly at it. Useless as a clock or weather station if you want to look at it from across the room or odd angle. Standard LCD screen is far better suited.
I love this unit, it's better than my Oregon one which cost much more. Only small difficulty is cancelling the alarm which can be fiddly if you get your fingers over the top which is where the snooze/dimmer touch sensor is. Apart from that, it's smart and works very well. A bit of Chinglish in the user manual but it's fairly easy to use.
My beloved weather station failed after two months! The backlight went dim over a few days and pretty much stopped working. Since I know LIDL don't stock these any more and I don't want a refund, I decided to repair it myself. One of the two backlight white LEDs had overheated and failed, which robbed power from the second LED. I replaced them both. Needed basic soldering skills but not particularly difficult since the unit came apart easily and the LED backlight board is quite accessible on the left side of the display. Replacement LEDs are available from eBay or could be salvaged from a discarded cool-white LED lamp.
