I have been playing around with a couple of electron devices over the last week or two and I have noticed some variable power draws that I can’t really explain.
The image below shows the battery level over time for a simple system that’s permanently on and reporting a reading every 10 minutes. But I have also observed the same behaviour on a system that was sleeping between check ins.
Usually during the day vs overnight the battery drains a bit faster suggesting a higher power draw.
The electron is connected to nothing and there are no other variables in play.
The only reason I can think of is increased mobile traffic during the day resulting in the electron working harder to get a signal or fight through the interference.
Does anyone have any other ideas or know whats going on?
