Invoking deepsleep() without having enabled WiFi shows a vastly lower power draw, about .001mA, so maybe the trick is to disable WiFi before entering sleep.
Once I have charged my 1000mAh battery back up I will try this out and report back

Re: ESP32 power conditioning

I'm looking for the same answer as you capstan - did my usual thing of posting before searching :P I have a 1000mAh lipo battery and at full charge will run my application for 10 hours - I'm using the machine.deepsleep module now and got up to 72 hours - this is the app running for under 10 seconds ...

Re: Code editor

If you post your code we can probably help you

I use Atom Text Editor with Hydrogen and the Platform IO Terminal Packages - works great for me

EDIT: rshell for your terminal session is pretty useful as well

Re: ESP32 stuck after wifi connect

station.ifconfig(('192.168.0.178','255.255.255.0','192.168.0.1','192.168.0.1')) I'm not sure if that is what .ifconfig does - are you copying your code or is that the output of .ifconfig? Other than that, I don't have any problem connecting using the network module exactly the way you are and my ES...

Re: Interactive Text Adventure Boxes

Yes, the wireless possibilities of the ESP32 (and cost!) Could bring a lot to something like this. I live right next to Caerleon where we have Roman Baths an ampitheatre and barracks, so yeah I think there could be a continuation of your work at some point!

Hi, I'm pretty new to MicroPython and the forum, but I just put together my first little project. I'm getting into growing veg and herbs, and the interest has been pushed along by creating "smart" growing projects - my first IoT planter recently won a prize in a Hackster.io competition, this project...

Re: ESP32 MQTT: publish and subscribe in same script

Great project! I'm working on a little environmental monitor based on the ESP32 to monitor ambient conditions in close proximity to seedlings grown in my lab. I have a Raspberry Pi Zero W doing watering routines. Sorry to sideline the discussion, but I can't get the umqtt.simple module to work - I g...
