      "There is an Round-Hole at the back of DG-C3, connect it by the includes USB cable with computer or power plug to create perpetual backlight.

      The cable is included and is USB to 3.5mm Barrel Jack pic and spares can be bought on eBay for $1 . I also mentioned in the description

    Accuracy is always the unknown/problem with these thingies. No clue if good or bad stops me.

  •  

    Bought one sometime ago. Ok for the money. Good comment by op re USB. Didn’t know that. Thought mine was defective because would only display details when press button haha.

  •  

    Any options for wall clock?

    •  

      According to OP, only if you're powering via USB.

    Do note the display is almost unusable without a backlight, it's really designed to be powered on continuously using the provided USB cable.

    Otherwise to see the display properly you'd need to press the button to light the screen.

    I didn't know about this limitation until it arrives and I was under the impression that the digits themselves were of an OLED variety.. But it's really just a normal lcd display with a color filter on top

    Mine sits on top of my HTPC since it can plug into a USB port.

    •  

      Have you tested it for accuracy? I guess to do so you probably need to already have a decent one (which I dont, so I expect its a shot in the dark)

      •  

        Nope, I don't have real scientific grade meters to test with. Only cheap weather clock from IKEA but I doubt that's any accurate either.

        Current reading on the window sill:
        17 (digoo) 16 (Ikea)
        Temp outdoor 15 (Bom weather)

    I am interested in this clock. Banggood.com describes "Digoo DG-C3 Wireless Color Backlit USB Hygrometer Thermometer Weather Forecast Station Alarm Clock".

    Its package list does not include any wireless temperature / humidity sensors and its specification does not mention any wireless technology (BT, WiFi, xxxMHz), does this "wireless" mean it can be powered by 3xAAA batteries so it is "wireless"?

    It can display the indoor temperature / humidity, I suppose it has built-in temperature / humidity sensors. It shows the weather forecast, will it collect weather forecast data from wireless / USB or will it forecast the weather based on the data it collects (indoor temperature / humidity, or …)?

    Took a chance on one. Thanks OP.

    Don't forget to Shopback yo (or Cashrewards if you only have that)

    I feel a bit dumb. Does this tell you the temperature and humidity indoors? or does it just hook up to an online weather service? The latter I can just google or look at on a phone app

    From the description

    • Records Max / Min Indoor Temperature with Trend Indication

    Looks like yes, it's indoor information, no wireless/data connection neccessary.

      The forecast function never seems to work on mine — it shows a static cloud icon since day one. The manual says you have to place it outside for it to give you an actual forecast, but I haven't tried it yet as it doesn't seem like something you would put outside (it's not a weatherproof design).

      •  

        I'm having trouble following the devices logic. What does putting it outside do to help it essentially predict the future weather? That's what you mean by forecast right?

        •  

          I think it needs to see a bigger variance / deviation in temp / humidity to create a forecast. If it's only constantly seeing room temperature (indoors) it can't predict the weather outside. that's just my guess.

        •  

          @scrimshaw: what's the time frame of the forecast? Is it a day in advance or an hour/hours?

        •  

          @scrimshaw:

          I don't mean to go on about it or nag you - but I'm not understanding how some $10 device is meant to be able to predict weather? Humidity and temperature can vary greatly between days, what does the smarts in the device do to account for that and predict it coming? Why have meterologists and why is the BOM website so popular if some random $10 device can essentially predict (read: forecast) the future? I mean I guess it's dynamic and so it changes it's prediction as needed but I'm still not getting how it would know much and that any forecast it could give wouldn't be relatively dumb/basic, for lack of a better word.

          /edit/ I probably should have read Jackson's comment first and waited for a reply on that before my follow up questions above but still..

    daily limit reached? used china warehouse, logged in. anything else?

    How do you guys pay GST on imported stuff? The merchant put that on top or someone else local gets it obviously on behalf?

    Anyone know of a good unit that does both indoor and outdoor (one wireless sensor)? I had a look at banggood but nothing interesting comes up, not interested in sad/happy faces when humidity/temp is outside a "comfort zone" either.

    •  

      I bought a cheap indoor outdoor wireless weather station from Bunnings a couple of years ago. It has a clock, date, no alarm, wireless outdoor sensor, works well, requires a couple of AAA batteries about once a year, under $20. Hangs on the wall in my lounge. Nothing fancy, but works well.

  •  

    Yep, daily limit reached for CH warehouse. Thanks though!

  •  

    Original Item appears to have been exhausted

  •  

    thanks op.

    any good cheap alarm clock that uses AA battery instead of AAA? i have a box load of new batteries i need to use.
    or are all of them always using AA

  •  

    just an fyi, this is a great but the only downside is that you cannot keep the lights on more than 5 seconds. You'll have to press the button at night.

  •  

    It's back available, more expensive as of now.

  •  

    Yes it is back up and Still $7 plus GST so $7.70 shipped - Choose CN warehouse

      I think they reset the limit for the coupon daily until the sale finishes on 16/09.
