Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up, great to use. I set this up in the corner of my garden on a short pole. It's not perfect placement as it's too close to some shrubs, but even so it's working really well. The hardest part was getting a mounting pole. Once I had tat it's very easy to set up. The connection to Wunderground works perfectly. The LCD panel updates nicely, looks good, and communicated pretty much in real time with Wunderground (I wish the power cable was slightly longer). No connection problems across 8- feet of garden (no obstructions though). So now I can look up how sunny it is in my garden from anywhere in the world!

What happens with power supply to the transmitter if the solar panel does not receive sufficient solar energy on a dark day with low cloud levels?

Asked by: bastiaan
The unit has a small rechargeable battery built in which is constantly recharged by the solar cell, you would need a couple of days of total blackout for the battery to become exhausted.

Approximately how long do the batteries last?

Asked by: Deejay
Please read user manual: indication for lifetime battery is 12 months for remote station and 24 months for base station. Consider solar panel as ppower source but the unit is £100 more expensive ......

Very pleased, works very well. However I assume spiders have built a nest in the rain gauge bit. The instructions to use a cotton bud seem unlikely to work. How do I get at the rain gauge mechanism? Thanks.

What is the actual manufacturer of this station and model number ? I would want to use this for an electronics project and would like to know if the instructions as well as cad files / images are available for this model at all.

Asked by: WelshPiGuy
This comes from a far east supplier with the model number PH1000. We would not have any of the design documents available, but the instructions can be downloaded from the following link; http://52.50.15.149:8072/Downloads/user-manual-9095
