    Rechargeables (even good ones like Enerloops) have less capacity than a good quality Alkaline battery. Given how little Alkalines last (it seems like some rooms last me only around a year), I've...

    I have no knowledge of how HR92s work, but from a purely common sense point of view, how could you design a system that "learns" without any feedback? "Assuming" how a particular radiator valve works...

    Surely there has to be a fault? The HR92 has no idea what the valve is doing "under the bonnet", it just knows that anti-clockwise = more heat, and clockwise = less heat. If it's demanding heat while...

    I adjusted all the little black plastic hex thingies so that screwing on the HR92 base just barely touches the pin without pushing it in. I wouldn't call those black plastic hex thingies a...
