I am trying to find a way to make the battery last longer. I am using the P1 module with 4 AA on a 6V system. The wifi is turn off. I just let the system run and the system last about 3 days. From the p1 datasheet, the operating current is about 30mA-40mA that seem to be right with my test.
Operating Current (Wi-Fi off) I3V3 avg 30 40 mA
Unfortunately, the system can’t not enter a deep sleep mode. Is there anyway to lower the current consumption? What other options could I try? The p1 need to keep track of a sensor when there is activity.
