The technological advantages
This unit comes shipped with a AA cell installed and running, and it doesn't have a power switch, so one would presume it's VERY economical on power, a proposal I intend to put to the test. Because it's smaller than I expected (only 4 1/2 inches wide and 5 1/4 tall), the display is small as well; the digits are less than half an inch high. So if you wanted to read it indoors through a window, you'd have to place it too close to your residence to be accurate. Better to put it far enough away to train a pair of binoculars on it. It probably needs an RF link to an indoor display, but that would take a lot more battery power. I'm currently comparing mine to a conventional graduated-cylinder rain gauge of unquestioned accuracy and precision, and for the most part it does amazingly well, but sometimes is off by a sizable percentage. I'm still trying to figure that out, but still, with no moving parts this electronic gauge is far superior in performance -- and ESPECIALLY sensitivity -- to any "tipping bucket"-type rain gauge on the market. And unlike those competitors it's insensitive to disturbances that generate false readings. It's not sensitive enough to register the first raindrops; it still takes a few minutes of rain to generate a reading, but without an indoor display that's not really an issue. It still shows rainfall a lot quicker than the competition. One neat capability I'm still learning to use to advantage is that you don't have to reset it immediately after it stops raining. You can leave the display in place until the next rainfall for the record, or you can collect cumulative results over any period you choose, as long as the battery lasts.
