have you worked with the esp32 at all?
den har
@denman0000_gitlab
@skorokithakis No not yet ... been holding back until price drops and hopefully will be able to port code over when I finally get one

@skorokithakis
aren't they pretty cheap now?

@skorokithakis dunno haven't actually even checked :-( ...

So I have a wemos D1 mini that I am using for remote water tank level sensing via the thingspeak IOT. I send the esp into deepsleep for 1 hour then wake, turn on a ping sensor and take a reading, measure the battery voltage and then connect to the network and send the readings to thingspeak. My issue is that after about two days it fails to go into deepsleep and sends the battery flat. I have a "deepsleep on fail to connect to wifi" routine in the sketch.

@moose4621 the code looks solid the battery dying seems like a problem. I would attach a deep cycle cell battery with a solar plane onto it, this way you can always have power be replenish on your downtime/ deep-sleep periods

@moose4621
@Allwaysawake Thanks for your reply. I probably should have added that it has a 800mah lipo and a solar panel attached.
@Allwaysawake When it is running I can see the battery hitting full charge by about midday everyday and then, crash with no more readings.

@Allwaysawake
@moose4621 what’s the size of your solar panels...?
Chris Dalby
@moose4621
Make that a 350mah lipo.
Um, 5watt 6v I think?
@Allwaysawake I also have the wemos battery shield attached with built in charger but I removed the leds which accounted for most of the power drain.
Chris Dalby
@moose4621
@Allwaysawake Its a 110 x 60mm panel. 6v 1w.
@Allwaysawake I see the battery voltage hits 4.2v at midday and by early morning it is about 4.05 to 4.1v just before the sun comes up.

@devyte
monitor available heap after each time the readings are reported out
there are known issues in core 2.4.1 about heap, and of course axtls can cause some trouble, so try latest git and, if you can, switch to bearssl, it's much more stable vs. axtls

@denman0000_gitlab Where are you getting the message numbers from? I cannot see any.

@moose4621 I think I am on track now with project ... I need to figure out how to carve up payload array into the variables I need on receive (Sprintf, sscanf)
