Power consumption

  • Under normal operation the ESP8266 chip consumes around 70mA at 3.3v with spikes of 300mA. These spikes are really anying while building a power supply. A 1000-2200uF cap and reduce these spikes. Source: #47 Power Saving with ESP8266.

  • The ESP.deepSleep() function doesn't work unless there is a delay of 100 after this command.

    ESP.deepSleep(1000*10000*3, WAKE_RF_DEFAULT) ; 
    delay(100); 
    
  • In deep sleep the ESP consumes around 0.06mA
