Oregon Scientific Eco weather station ditches batteries

Oregon Scientific has announced the release of the +ECO Clima Control weather station, a new weather station that runs on solar power.

Coming with a built-in solar panel, the new weather station gadget allows its users to monitor the current temperature and humidity in up to four locations within the home and outdoors. To do this, it uses remote wireless temperature and humidity sensors for up to 3 months from a single 8-hour charge.

The new device, which is available in the US from this month, will be joined by two further eco-friendly devices in September, says the company.

The +ECO Solar Weather Station promises to monitor current indoor and outdoor weather temperatures, humidity and shows an iconic future weather forecast, as well as Atomic time while the +ECO Solar Weather Clock will monitor the current indoor and outdoor weather temperatures and humidity, as well the Atomic time.

Both products are equipped with detachable solar panels and remote wireless temperature and humidity sensors like the Clima Control offering.

The +ECO Clima Control has a suggested retail price of $119.99 in the US. No word as yet on UK pricing.

We will keep you posted.
