No data collection during power outage for my Acurite Access 09155M.  I have tried numerous things and made sure batteries are fresh and name brand but there is no data collected and then uploaded when power comes back up.

Yes I have the batteries installed per the marking on the inside of the door. Springs to negatives.  Maybe mine is just defective.  I do have a UPS that will keep things up for about 8 hours but as I learned a few days ago after a big storm, the power will sometimes be out longer than that like 14.5 hours.
