The temperature i set in Celsius and we have mild autumn weather with some rain. I had the SAK inside and it read 22 Degrees Celsius. So I placed it outside to read the outside temperature
to compare it to the analog measurer i normally use that reads +11 degrees Celsius and these can have a margin of around +- 1, 5 degrees C. It takes some time for the Traveller Lite digital temperature reader to get the outside measure and it gradually fell
towards the correct reading. This is because aluminum, plastic, brass, metal and components will have a delay because of the stored heat.
I would believe there are must
be some form of compensator vs. certain factors in the electronics and components. It finds the temperature indoors a bit faster. It takes at least some minutes because metal can get cold and steel and aluminum does not follow each other with temperature abilities
and so on….The altimeter is influenced by barometric pressure. And the barometer is looking for persistent changes so I would believe the temperature are influenced by other functions and compensations. It is probably looking for a persistent change
as well. It is a very correct digital temperature on the Traveller Lite and the reading was +11-12 degrees Celsius. Some weather may influence the readings in a special way and electronics may find itself in a problem with what to grab. I have not found one
on this yet that said. The only thing is the time it used to find the outdoors temperature like mentioned earlier.
I would suggest that the key ring can be a valuable
help hanging from a string with a certain protection above it. This is to get a best possible reading. I really enjoy this SAK… I would recommend calibrating the altimeter and barometer when you are outside or inside. The barometer pressure can be read
whether inside or outside. Inside the temperature is very stable compared to outdoors where a sudden drop in temperature may indicate changes better. It must have advanced sensors to distinguish all the factors. Outdoors you have the advantage with the temperature,
altimeter and barometer together. It is very normal to have barometers indoors and this may be the best many times with traditional devices.
Remember that calibrations on a regular
basis are important! I hope you enjoy my little research and let me know if I have any mistakes.
I noticed the barometer and altimeter made a change. The barometer rised with 3 lines for hours and the arrow still pointing up. After this the weather is a bit better and the sky a bit
I tested the battery on a tester and it is still good. It does use some battery when testing out all the functions much. My conclusion is that the Traveller Lite is very high quality
and it performs. The blades and functions within the SAK i do not need to test since i know them in and out. Everything is 100% ok with my Traveller Lite.
