I hope you are doing well. I’ve just added a new guide to the RNT Lab.
Here’s the direct link: ESP8266 Voltage Regulator (Prepared for LiPo Batteries)
The ESP8266 is well known for being power hungry when performing Wi-Fi tasks. It can consume from 50mA to 170mA. So, for a lot of applications it’s not ideal to use a battery with it.
However, for some projects that use deepsleep or don’t require constant Wi-Fi connection, using the ESP8266 with rechargeable LiPo batteries is a great solution.
Knowing how to power the ESP8266 with LiPo batteries will be really useful for future projects.
Next week I’ll be posting a new ESP8266 guide about deepsleep with Arduino IDE!
Thanks for reading,
