I'm desperately trying to find the PDF manual for the Hobby Boards 1-Wire moisture meter data logger. Does anyone have a copy they could send to me please?
 
Specifically, I'm interested in the approx. battery life for each available logging frequency in the Config software? I'm hoping to log for an entire year, using 2 moisture sensors and the internal temp sensor.

Many thanks in advance.

Close, but no cigar! Its good, but its not Carling!

That is the manual for the standard Moisture Meter, rather than the Moisture Meter Datalogger.

Thanks all the same though!  :D

Here's the answer.  :)

Logs over 65,000 log records (based on logging data from 4 soil sensors and 2
temperature sensors)
o Approximately 45 days of logging when sampling every minute
o Over a year of logging when sampling every 10 minutes
 Logs over 116,000 log records if only one sensor is logged
o Approximately 80 days of logging when sampling every minute
o Over two years of logging when sampling every 10 minutes
 Battery life using standard alkaline batteries will be more than adequate for
these logging time frames under ideal conditions. In extreme conditions battery
life will be reduced but should still be adequate to provide full logging capacity.

And for fun....  The maximum power draw is 18mA.
 Sleep power draw is 6A
