I am using a Photon in a solar powered weather station at the moment. I keep the device alive with Wifi turned off most of the time in order to not miss rain count, wind speed, etc. (If I put the device to sleep I would miss out on weather events). I average and collect weather as often as possible, and make recordings every 30 seconds. Every 5 minutes I turn on Wifi, connect to the cloud, publish all frames of data, and then turn Wifi back off.
I am wondering if a direct swap out of Argon would save power. Any other advice would be helpful.
