    I am looking into buying a new weather station but I need one with serious data logging capabilities as

    I am often away from home for weeks or even months at a time but want to be able to record data.

    I have a PC but obviously could not leave it on whilst away. Most of the weather stations I've looked at

    can only store a few days worth of data (at 10-minute intervals); does anyone know of a solution?

    If there is a way to store only max/min readings that would be good - is this possible?

    You can buy a data logger for the Davis Vantage Pro's. I THINK it will store data while the pc is turned off but i'm really not sure for how long it stores the data if it does :rolleyes:

    Edit: Just checked, you can store up to 6months on it :)

    Well I think that would do it...

    But is there anything cheaper anyone knows of!

    You could, and it would probably be the cheapest solution. If you got a USP device to take over and shut it down safely in the event of a power cut, you'd have nothing to worry about.

    I had my VP2 connected to a machine in the shed which was on for months on end..until it died of old age.
