    Default "Battery low" on controller

    One of my two Evohome controllers reports "battery low" within a few minutes of being unplugged from the mains. I remember seeing something about how to fix this but can't recall the detail and can't find the discussion. Please can someone give me a pointer ... ?

    To initiate a full recharge of the battery:

    Seat the evohome controller on to the base station.
    When fully located remove the batteries.
    Wait until the battery symbol displays a cross in it and then reinsert them.
    Leave the evohome controller on the base station for at least 12 hours before removing it again.*

    Also check the rechargeable batteries in the controller are fitting tightly, making good contact with their terminals.

    Thanks! That seems to have sorted it.
