Cheap and good – 2.8" LCD Indoor/Outdoor Digital Humidity/Hygrometer + Thermometer (1*AAA) Reviews

posted by cyroluna on 07/07/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Displays indoor and outdoor temperature
Long cable of the remote sensor (~ 2m)
The remote sensor is waterproof
Max/Min memory
C and F
Indoor humidity
Long life of the battery
Uses one AAA
Large and easy-to-read display
Cons:
The included battery comes dead.
No wallmounting holes, despite that is said in the description.
Its not so accurate. Even with the remote sensor close to the body of the thermometer, in and out temperature are about 1 ºC different.
Other:
A alcaline battery is lasting about 6 months.
I compared the displayed temp with a 'more reliable' thermometer, and the difference was about 0,1 ºC for the outdoor temp, and more than 1 ºC for indoor temp (sometimes more than 2 ºC).
Bottomline:
This is the best thermometer of this kind in DX, and is cheap. I recommend it, but recommend to compare with anoter one before use it, to make an idea of the accuracy.
