I'm considering replacing my trusty ol' Davis WMII with a Vantage Pro Plus. For a variety of reasons (good sun exposure for UV and solar radiation sensors, clear rainfall collection, shaded temp/hum sensor location, short transmission distance, ease of access) the best mounting position for the ISS at my house is a gable fascia facing north. While the solar and UV sensors will get lots of direct sunlight from above, the solar power panel will face north.

The Davis ISS manual available at the Davis website recommends mounting the ISS to achieve "the maximum amount of sunshine at that location," and elsewhere says "the solar panel should face south" . . . er, speaking as a Northern Hemispherian that is!

Has anyone any direct experience with power problems related to less than ideal solar panel positioning? How long do batteries last in members' experience? Any power issues of any sort? I suppose I could use the AC power option, but that's an inelegant solution I'd like to avoid if possible. Thank you!
