What is 'minimum wind chill'?

What is 'minimum wind chill'?

Best Answer

Wind Chill is the measure of the cooling effect of wind. Wind increases the rate at which a body loses heat, so the air on a windy day feels cooler than the temperature indicated by a thermometer. This heat loss can be calculated from various combinations of wind speed and air temperature and then converted to a wind chill equivalent temperature (or wind chill factor). The maximum wind chill could be colder than the minimum depending on wind and temperature, and the rate at which you are traveling.

I bought one of these a few weeks ago but the wind chill function doesn't seem to work. It always reads the same as the normal temperature, regardless of wind speed.

I've emailed support@brunton.com from different addresses but the emails keep getting bounced back. What should I do...wind chill is one of the main reasons

I bought it? If it can't be resolved, I'll have to return it as a faulty product.

Hey Ben, just like a watch, the ADC units do not turn off. The battery will last about a year with normal use. You can always pull the battery...

Wind Speed!

    This is a great little device that tells you the wind speed, temperature, time, etc... It is very useful when you are the first one at the kite spot and need to know what size kite to ride. It is easy to use and comes with a lanyard so you don't lose it.

    Hello, I'm looking for a device for my road bike that would allow me to calculate wind speed and its direction as well as temperature if possible.

    If such a device for bike exists, I would also like to know its weight and if it is easy to install on a bike.

    I would also like to know its price and shipping price.

    Thanks so much

    No bike-specific wind gause exists that I know of. This device, clipped to your person or backpack/panniers would be your best bet.
