Electron - ways to save power with 15sec UDP send

Hi All,

We have a solar powered Electron.

I have an application that is sepecified to send a 22byte UDP every 15secs (its a realtime traffic monitoring probe). I’m looking for ways to save power we have a 3000mAh LiPo and its getting drained like a bucket with no bottom!

At a 15sec poll rate is there anything practically we are able to do to put the Ublox modem into a lower power state inbetween the UDP messages?

I note that there is a power saving command in the ublox = AT+UPSV=1 is this worth setting? There doesn’t seem to be any bad side effects from setting it?

We can handle a few seconds of re-establishment time to send the packet.

Thanks and Regards
