This was just one way to mount the device, SInce I wanted to have it in a dusty enviornmnet (stable) I choose to keep it enclosed. I am seeing a slight temp boost when I close up the box. Looks like it a pretty even 8 deg offset, so I might just add an offset variable to compensate. If your not worried about  dust then you can move the DHT11 outside the case or come up with a case that has vents.

I have not tested the battery from full charge to empty, but have had it up and running at least 3 days. Right now I am testing a small solar panel to keep the batter charged during the day. The unit is located out in my stable.

Very interesting ! Thanks a lot for all these instructions ! How long roughly lasts the 18650 battery of your setup ?

I don't see any vents in the box although the last picture is not se clear. In my experience some ventilation is needed to ensure a proper temperature reading. Maybe you can drill some holes in a nice pattern?
