A sleek, stylish display stands upright for tabletop and is also wall-mountable. The outdoor sensor features powerful wireless technology, a weather-resistant design and an integrated hanger for easy mounting. It also comes with a One-year limited warranty.

This digital thermometer has a very good looking color display and as soon as I put the batteries in, it lit up perfectly and projects a cool vibe on the counter in the kitchen area. The outside temperature is displayed first with the relative humidity below. At a quick glance one can determine if they should wear flip flops or a winter jacket. The frost icon will display when temperatures are below freezing.
The digital clock is clean and bright, while the day of the week is a little tough to read. The stand holds the unit upright and although I don't need to know the phases of the moon, this still looks cool.
The indoor temperature works great and having the relative humidity for inside the RV is a bonus. Excess moisture in your RV can cause mold to grow, wood to rot, and metallic parts to quickly corrode. You want to keep your inside relative humidity between 30% and 50%, so this feature is really handy.
The packaging states that it requires 5 "AA" batteries, but it is really 2 "AA" and 3 "AAA" batteries. The batteries are a backup power source to preserve records in the event of a power outage and the power adapter is recommended as the primary source to enjoy the full functionality of the product. When traveling, just unplug the unit, place it in a safe location and when back on shore power just plug the unit back in.
All in all, the Acurite Digital Thermometer performs well, looks great and sells for $44.99.
