Default acu-rite hygrometer at wallyworld

I picked one of these up at Walmart a few weeks ago. I like the fact the humidity reading is at the top. It also has the min and max readings. Nice shape, size and actually very nice looking, all for under $8. The one I got also seems to be very accurate compared to all my other hygrometers.
Here's a link, but cheaper at Walmart:

www.partshelf.com/acu-rite-00613.html

Check it out.

What section of the store did you pick it up at? I was there the other day and was looking all over the place and still had no luck in finding them.

Check by the thermometers or weather station sections. It's difficult to locate at some stores.

Where would the thermometers be though? Electronics, hardware, ...? No one there is ever around to answer a simple question so any more detailed info would be awesome. Great find by the way!

Yeah, I know most stores I've been in they seem to be wherever they can find a spot (a tiny spot at that). I finally ended up asking a guy in the sports section to guide me to them. Help is difficult to find, but that may be the only way to locate these. Most are only too happy to help, once you can find someone. Happy hunting.

I keep one of these in each of my humidors (4) and they are right on the mark. I found them either in the paint section on the end of the aisle or in electronics. Either way, ask the WallyMart tech (lol) where the Accurite temp and humidity guages are. They sell them here for about $6.74,,,where can you beat a deal like that?

ive got 3. they all off by 3-7%rh on salt test, then on actual use their readings all vary once again again. it is impossible to get an accurate read and would not recommend these.

Mine came back as a +2 and that matchs up with both my others which were also +2 and plus +3 (Their variance I already knew).

Good enough for me.......

Default Re: acu-rite hygrometer at wallyworld

I've got 4 of them, all within 3% points. Once again, close enough for me at that price. Better units are out there for a price for those demanding spot on accuracy.

Default Re: acu-rite hygrometer at wallyworld

They are hit and miss but for the most part if you need a few this is a good buy in bulk. I have bought 6 I think maybe 7. I only had one that was off by more than 5 and it was way off, 10ish I think. I took it back and exchanged it for one that was off by 2. Almost every one I have is low not high and mostly by just 2 or 3. I have salt test them all at reg intervals and they don't appear to be getting worse, so I just keep the like units together and know they are off by what ever they are. I have 2 in one vino that tested low by 2. They read 68 every day I look at them (Scott's beads in the vino by the way).
