The sensors and the base unit are battery powered, giving you a portable unit you can carry around the house with you.

What data can I view with this weather station?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I have owned one of these for two years. It does what it says on the box, however reliability is a big issue. After eight months of use, the base station failed to receive information from the remote sensor. Maplin were very efficient in replacing the entire item. Six months further on the same problem occurred on the new station. By this time it was out of guarantee. Maplin, as an act of good will, agreed to replace just the transmitter, but this did not rectify the problem. The only way the remote can now send its information is if it is within one metre of the base station and therefore cannot be outdoors. Summary: nice unit, but reliability?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from for anyone who knows how to use meteorological equipment this is pretty good. The 2 ft long pole can be attached to a post / pole to get the desired accuracy for the anemometer (7ft+) the long wires allows the rain bucket to be located on the ground to avoid under-reading from wind exposure. The temperature sensor can be placed at 1.4m above the ground, and in a superior radiation shield for better accuracy if required (all thermometers over-read without radiation protection). The console part displays a lot of useful info like wind chill, dew point, and times max and mins were recorded

Rated 3 out of 5 by from At first this product gave me hours of frustration. The transmitter would only talk to the received if they were both indoors and very close to each other. I tried moving them closer, further apart, indoors, outdoors and even tried an obscure suggestion that I warm the transmitter on the radiator for a while, all to no avail. A replacement transmitter gave exactly the same poor results until I tried more powerful batteries and it all started working. So my advice is that if you buy one of these weaklings, try Duracel Lithium batteries - they finally gave the thing enough punch to get through my double glazing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I got this weather station in 2009, and it was brilliant. It produced accurate readings, and gave forecasts that, usually, were very accurate too. The receiver had a nice large screen that showed the information very clearly. It displayed all sorts of data: the time, internal and external temperature and humidity, pressure with a time graph, rainfall and wind speed. I would have rated this weather station 5 stars without thinking, but then, the anemometer jammed (probably rust). I did find an anemometer replacement, but by which time, the weather station had long ago been thrown away. It lasted about 3 years, and was worth the money, especially since you can but replacements for mere pounds.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I have had it running for about 18 months and over two winters. After a year the wind speed seized up due to water in the bearing. A couple of quid got a new bearing and I filed some plastic away to make a rain groove to let the water out. No more problems. A proper weather station would cost ???300 so the price is not too bad if it lasts. Some debris recently broke the wind cups and I am pleased to say the spares from Maplin were only ???2.49 - brilliant. My last one from another company only lasted a year before packing up so not too bad so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Received this weather station as a Christmas present in 2012 as an upgrade to a previous one. It is easy to set up and fascinating to watch. Like other reviewers I have been keen for hurricanes and torrential rain just to watch it perform! The forecast has consistently been accurate. Each time I upgrade though I want more features and next time would go for one where I could download data to my computer. I would also like wind direction next time. But on the whole, this weather machine does the job for a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good bit of kit & great value when on offer. Easy installation & clear instructions, cables are longer than requred but cable ties are provided so not too much of an issue! Signal is good too! I mounted the remote unit on the side of my garage (don't forget that you need to mount the unit to something, I used a TV aerial mast) which is in the back garden & the main display is in my study at the front of the house so no problems there then. Overall a good buy, would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A brilliant bit of kit, and at ???29.99 and with free delivery from Maplin a steal! I have the instruments set up on top of a hill OVER ONE HUNDRED METERS AWAY and, with a clear line-of-sight between the instruments on the hilltop and base station on the windowsill it works perfectly! It has already withstood a pretty good battering (they are mounted four-foot high pole secured with four wire 'guys', with the rain gauge lower down on a separate smaller post around one foot off the ground). Up here in the Northwest Highlands I am sure it will be well tested! Had thought about the next model up for PC connectivity and wind direction as well as speed but decided to spend less because I was not sure about the range capabilities. Now that I know how well these stations work I would not hesitate to recommend every single one of them! I look forward to upgrading already but am very pleased with this one too!

Hello, I have replaced the batteries in both the sensor and indoor unit. It was working well for a while and now it won’t show no rind, rain or temp for outside. Any idea what to do? It still flashes red on the sensor when you push batteries in still

How to get softwear downloded as new laptop does not allow cd to play as laptop des not have cd player

Asked by: Allan
This unit hasn't got any pc connectivity the only thing on the CD is the user manual. If its the user manual you are looking for you could use one of the links from the past FAQ's of people asking for a copy or download it directly from the downloads tab on the webpage.

Hello Re advice below (remove batteries for 24hrs) I've tried this and still no outdoor temperatures are being received :(

Hello. I've had this unit for a while and was working fine. I replaced batteries in both units. All the information comes up on the base unit except the outdoor settings, shows nothing at all! Shows everything fine on the sensor??

Asked by: Evogirl
This can be rectified in most cases by taking the batteries out of all compartments for 24 hours and this should send the unit back to factory default.

I have had this weather station for about  4 years. The sensor set up outside is now eating Duracell batteries. We have put 4 sets in, in the last 6 months. The latest hasn’t lasted 24 hours. What is the problem?

Asked by: JanM
Sorry but it would be impossible to offer any kind of diagnostic help on an unseen item via a text only exchange. If your 4 year old system now appears to be problematic then the most logical solution would be to replace it.

What can cause the Gadget weather station to stop displaying wind speed, please?

Asked by: Fulbourn
Loss of connectivity to the outdoor sensor. This can be rectified by taking the batteries out of all compartments for 24 hours and this should send the unit back to factory default.
