06058M HD Display Question

I just picked up a 06058M HD Display and have a question about memory backup. The unit appears to not have a battery backup. Will the memory be lost if the unit is unplugged for any length of time? If I want to move it or if the power goes out will it lose it's memory? My other unit that came with my 5in1 runs on batteries or A/C so memory isn't lost when A/C is not working.

Thanks!

Hello Kurt,

This product does not have a battery back up. It will hold power for about a minute or so and then after that the information on the display would be lost should the display lose power for an extended period of time. Thank you. Enjoy your day!

Hello Scott,

We are referring to both. The display does have very little memory. It is possible that when the display was powered back on that the memory was able to hold in the display, however we would not expect this to happen all the time. If you were to attach the display to the UPS it would not void your warranty. Thank you for checking with us about that. Please let us know if there is anything further we can assist you with.

It would be nice if this information was in the instruction manuals.  I have the display  plugged into the UPS for the computer, but it would be nice to be able to unplug to move it or just to untangle cords.  Perhaps Accurite could offer an add on battery pack that goes between the power supply and the unit.

It's a flawed design. No memory back up, no way for the end user to update the firmware and I've found the signal reception from the 5 in 1 sensor can randomly drop out too. Which means you can miss out on rain fall data etc.

There's also a bug in the firmware that calculates the "Feels Like" temperature- this has been acknowledged by AcuRite and the only way to fix it is to get a replacement display!

Rainfall data is transmitted from the sensor via a counter, so you aren't going to miss rainfall data if the signal drops out.

Okay, so a total is stored in the 5 in 1 sensor and it will keep that until you replace the batteries in it - but then the total is lost or does the 5 in 1 have permanent memory?Also, if the signal is lost during a rain event the total is correct- but you don't have the record of what time/ day the rain fell? (I know I had rain but it wasn't tallied against that day due to the signal dropping out.) 

I've had to relocate the HD Display to a position where it no longer appears to randomly loses the signal.

I am not happy with the display not having battery backup. Most other companies have this on every unit. They need to incorporate this or lose customers. And having to do a factory reset should not be an option. Firmware update would be nice on all models also. especially if there is problems found after they were shipped.
