†Specified range is narrower than nominal range due to precision calibration process. Using TidbiT Temp loggers in wet environments (>90% RH) over 86°F (30°C) for extended periods of more than 8 weeks cumulative may lead to premature failure. For applications over 30°C use the HOBO® Water Temp Pro v2.
