    Maplin Aercus not charging

    Post by Cirrus133 » Thu 03 Jan 2019 10:09 am

    Hi all.

    I have a Maplin Aercus weather station and it seems to have stopped charging the batteries. I noticed the data was not picking up on indoor unit so changed the batteries for new rechargable ones and it lasted three days and did the same.

    I don't want to go looking for a new weather station. Any advice please?

    Swapping the rechargeable batteries was the right first move. Did you check for dirty battery contacts? Is the solar panel dirty?

    Otherwise I saw an ebay advert for a guy who does refurbishing - you could contact him
