This evening, I received an e-mail indicating that our Tempest had gone offline. I wondered if the same thing that happened to me before had happened again, where there was a known glitch in the firmware which caused certain units to go offline. I pulled the mounting pole down just now, untwisted the Tempest from its base and hit the LED reset button. Unlike last time, this time, the LED never gave me any visual feedback. I tried turning the unit on and off with the power switch, but got the same negative results.
When looking at the settings, I noticed that the last reported reading of the battery voltage was 2.38V. This leads me to believe that I have a bad battery or a defective solar panel charging system.
Regardless, I opened up a support ticket, but would like for the community gurus to take a look and confirm what I’m seeing.
Thank you, in advance, for your time and efforts!
Have a wonderful evening…
