I have an electron which is taking readings every 10 minutes and publishing an event to the cloud ( and then my database) with the data along with the RSSI and battery level.
the other day there was a few periods where it did not upload any data for 40 minutes or in one case 3 hours. I checked the logs and in this time I have the device came online event twice.
So I am assuming that for one reason or another the particle failed to connect. I’m unsure as to whether this was a power problem or connectivity but I know that there was some cellular maintenance in my area!
In this 40 minutes the battery fell significantly more than the average level
Soooo… my question is this: if the particle fails to connect to a network does it just keep trying and trying until it gets a connection and thus drains the battery?
If so is there a way I can tell it to try a couple of times and if that fails then go back to sleep and try again the next time round?
