alkaline batteriesNot all batteries are created equal...

• AcuRite recommends NEW, HIGH QUALITY, NAME BRAND ALKALINE batteries for the best product performance.

• In outdoor, low temperature conditions (below -4 degrees Fahrenheit / -20 degrees Celsius), AcuRite recommends NEW, HIGH QUALITY, NAME BRAND LITHIUM batteries for the best product performance.

• Verify batteries are fresh. The battery expiration date should be at least 5 years in the future. Batteries can lose 3% of their power or more every year in storage.

• Follow the polarity (+/-) diagram in the battery compartment. 

DO NOT USE heavy duty, rechargeable or private label brand batteries. These batteries are not recommended due to fluctuations in the way these types of batteries disperse power.
