The result was a device which lasts almost a month when it reports temperature once an hour over XBee and is powered by 1000mAh LiPo battery.
Instead of official Arduino, I used ...[more]
So, I went and tested their claims and they were correct, indeed. When running Olimexino-328 at 3.3V using battery connector, power down mode ...[more]
As I got my INA219 sensor working, the next logical step was to actually find out how you can save some power with Arduinos.
Sparkfun provides a nice article about the subject and atmega328p datasheet is also an useful information source.
To save power, I basically did following things:
To optimize the power usage of my Arduino devices, I first needed to measure the power usage.
I could have done it traditionally with multimeter, but then I found Adafruit's INA219 sensor breakout board.[more]
