Outdoor Module Battery ligetime

Post by tom.lindved » 02 Mar 2018, 09:17

Dear All,
After changing the batteries at the Outdoor Module, the new batteries runs out of power after 1 to 2 weeks. Batteries used: Duracell Plus Power
Outdoor Module Serial Number: h19c286, Firmware: 44
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

Use for outside lithium batteries. Can better with cold and last longer. Are slightly more expensive.

The battery life time of my outdoor module is currently down to roughly one week and I am getting a bit frustrated. From this forum it looks like the problem is not uncommon. My firmware is 132/44 and it seems that an upgrade is available (134/46). However, more than one user is reporting problems with these new firmware versions. Two options available:
- Upgrade firmware with a risk of malfunction.
- Buy new outdoor module.
Anyone with experience of a replacement of the outdoor module? Does it fix the battery problem?
Thx for your views

A new module fixed it for me. Replacement outdoor module set up 17 July 17 and today battery is still on 87%. If you ask them they will probably change it.

I got the update (134/46) last Sunday, March 4 and everything works 100%, also the other modules and no problems with the batteries. I use lithium batteries for the outdoor modules.

Since the update of last Sunday 2 days no air quality measurement, only the message: 'No recent data'. From 17.00 o'clock this afternoon everything works again !!
