When the battery on the display goes dead or is removed, the memory (record temps, rainfall, etc.) are all cleared. Is there no way to retain this if the batteries die?

Hello Chris,

If you remove the batteries from the display and it loses power you will lose the records. There is no way to keep the records when the batteries need to be changed. They should need to be changed about once a year depending on the name brand of the battery you are using.  Follow the battery guidelines below:

•Verify you are using fresh alkaline batteries or lithium batteries (when temperature is below -4oF/-20oC) in sensor.

•Quality brand batteries are recommended, including Duracell, Rayovac, Energizer, or Kirkland.

•Verify batteries are fresh. The battery expiration date should be at least 6 years out. Batteries can lose 3% power or more every year in storage.

•Heavy duty, extra strength or generic / store brand batteries are not recommended for use with AcuRite products because they may cause performance irregularities due to the way these types of batteries disperse power. Each battery should not exceed 1.6 volts.

•Rechargeable batteries are not recommended for use with AcuRite products because they may cause performance irregularities due to the voltage instability of these types of batteries.

•Mixing different battery types (brands, old/new, etc.) is not recommended.
