    Greetings, Today the battery was came out of the hygrometer. I remember being told once: when you change batteries, recalibrate. Do you think I need to? Tomorrow night is lockdown.

    At this point no. But recalibrate before your next hatch.

    Quote:Parts are all the same, but if new battieries are exchanged, the power level can be different. This can cause different readings, especially in the cheaper hygrometers most of us use. Finish this hatch and recalibrate before the next one.
