Hello Particle community,
I have an Electron that i want powered by a Li-SoCl2 battery instead of the LiPo, as a low self-discharge rate is important.
I was looking at this battery:
Apperently the Electron 2G uses a peak current of 1800mA when sending packages. But the battery only has a pulse current capability of 1000mA. I’ve read something about putting a capacitor in parrallel with the battery to handle the current peaks, but how do i find out what capacitor i need for this to function?
The datasheet says 470uF to 1000uF depending on the batterys ability to deliver peak current, so what capacitance should i get for this battery and how do you calculate it?
Running the above battery in parrallel with the 2000mAh LiPo won’t work, right?
I just saw this thread:
But it doesn’t answer my question i think.
i also saw this link:
How long are the peak pulses of 1800mA current use on the Electron 2G?
Thanks in advance,
