This weekend, I decided to test the battery life of my prototypes.
The program is currently processing for 30 seconds, then sleeping for 1 minute
- ESP01 LiPo 18650 - Claim 3000mAh, but probably 1100mAh - 16 hr 40 mins
- Wemos D1 - LiPo 18650 - Claim 3000mAh, but probably 1100mAh - 34 hr 25 mins
Those times are fairly disappointing. I don't want to be changing batteries every day.
I might go down the static IP route to speed up the connection, and then play with the awake/sleep ratio. I should be able to decrease awake time, and increase sleep time.
