I’m planning to use the VL53L0X yes. I also read about the Tadiran batteries before; I saw one LiSOCl2 but it didnt support the high current pulses without some sort of capacitor, so I should look at it again. I’ve seen a project somewhere where a person used the OV-7670 camera with an Arduino to control a remote robotcar: not sure how he uploaded a live video feed, but surely it should be possible to publish an image file with the Particle too?
Im confused though about the 2A thing; first, the 3G Electron should only have bursts up to 800mA if I remember correctly (2A should be for the 2G ones?)
and second, if the max. continous discharge is 2A, shouldbt that mean it can handle such peaks for a reasonable amount of time? (e.g. more than a second)
