Thread: Digicabi Hydrometer Battery Life

    Default Digicabi Hydrometer Battery Life

    Anyone know how often the AA batteries need to be replaced in the Digicabi. The Energizers that I'm using last about 2 weeks to a month.

    Would like to hear from you peeps on your experiences.

    Sure you are using Energizers or rather a cheap Chinese copy? My no-names last already > 1 year.

    My 2 x AAA Eveready that comes with my dry cabi lasts almost 2 years. Recently changed.

    HAHA...well it says Energizer but don't know if they are copies. Just bought a new pack of AAA's from NTUC so hope they are the real deal...will report back in about a week to see if they are still good. Just wanted to make sure there's nothing wrong with my hydrometer i.e. using more power than it's suppose to.

    By the way, it's hygrometer, not hydrometer.

    Better to check in on the batteries once in awhile... The display on mine went out so thought the battery ran out. Turns out the battery leaked and now it's spoilt. Anyone know if it can be replaced? Or I might just buy another hygrometer to put inside..

    May I know what's the brand of batteries in it?

    That's awfully short! Energizers, at the very least, are alkaline batteries. They should definitely last longer than that.

    Sounds like battery problem.
