Hey @Zamaria,

The IHD shouldn't be using battery life that quickly. We do recommend plugging it into the mains, this will be more cost effective for you, more info here.

If you have any issues with it whilst it is plugged into the mains please contact our https:// m.me/ovoenergy team.

Cheers!

Erm @Zamaria - my Chameleon lasts not much more than this too. I understand the technical bits inside it, and that seems about right considering that it's permanently driving a 100x50mm colour screen.

I tend to leave mine plugged in (charging) on a shelf and only take it down when I want to berate it for still not showing me anything about my gas usage! 😂

The battery is so the ihd can be mobile, for short periods of time say when maybe checking electric appliance costs.
If in permanent use the ihd should be plugged in constantly, it cost 80p a year to run it if left in. Its just 3 Watts.
