Thanks tophmck.. yeah, we thought the same thing. Here is the webpage for my sensors that I scrape the data from and it has a battery column that I HOPE will change at some point.
So far they have all read OK. I'm expecting to see LOW or warning or something soon. http://www.weatherdirect.com/TX60.aspx?&wusid=183726&bxid=2147901275
I've been using 4 of them for about a year in my ferm chamber build
and haven't had to change a battery yet.
