Batteries Replaced

By Mangrove Mike

Over the last few months I have had problems with the Vantage Vue batteries that were failing at about dawn. The Vantage Vue uses solar during the day and batteries overnight which are supposed to last about 18 months.

I'd already replaced the battery in January but it started to fail during May. I don't know if it was a dodgy battery of if there is a problem with the battery use (or solar re-charge / switch over).

There is some bad data collected when the batteries were draining so I am trying to clean the bad data up so the historical records are correct.
