Can lipo be specified as power source in code?

Also, if you want to save a bit more power, turn off the status LED… Every bit counts.


I think you’re right. I measured 22 ma draw with a multimeter in Tinker (Cloud connected), in System.sleep(D1, RISING, long seconds), and in System.sleep(SLEEP_MODE_DEEP). When communicating with cloud (ping / signal / OTA) it went to 50 ma briefly. What’s odd is that according to the chart below my measurements are an order of magnitude off. 20ma vs 200ma, 500ma vs 50ma.

Would be nice to have an updated Boron power spec, says TBD for sleep currents:

Time to pull out a fresh Boron w/o external circuitry.
