I’m new here and would like to understand the difference between Boron 3G and electron 3G
I noticed that the Boron module is also available in 2/3G at the same cost as the electron (except it may not come with a sim card as it’s not mentionned). Is the more complete Boron destined to replace the Electron in the near future? Some people seem to blame the lack of deep sleep in this module, but in the Docs, the sleeps modes are probably all, such as the Electron but withoud real information about consumption.
I wish to build a long lasting battery operated 3G module for a simple monitoring station sending data to thingspeak or to cloud every 1-3 hours with deep sleep+handshake every time. I need to use an ultrasonic sensor and I’m not sure the library support the Boron right now. In the future, when LTE-M1 will be avalable in my region, I’m going to move to Boron LTE if possible. I may not need the added feature on the Boron, but I suppose starting with this one will make the transition 3G-LTE easier?
Just to mention, I don’t know right now if I’ll use particle or 3rd party sim card.
My knowledge in this field is limited and would like to have your advice before going any further.
Thanks a lot
