Okay so I have become a really really big fan of the WeMos D1 Esp8266 (Here is the exact model I have purchased. http://www.ebay.com/itm/NodeMCU-Lua-ESP8266-ESP-12-WeMos-D1-Mini-WIFI-4MB-Development-Board-Module-USA-/222451740131?hash=item33cb282de3:g:jgoAAOSw4CFY1s22)
I really really like them because they are really easy to upload code on. Unlike when I purchase a Esp8266 by itself. (http://www.ebay.com/itm/ESP8266-ESP-12E-Wireless-Remote-Serial-WiFi-Module-Transceiver-Board-AP-STA-/121951859776?hash=item1c64e5b440:g:6aQAAOSwGYVXCqTg)
But I have finally finished my project and everything is working great. I have all the code loaded onto the WeMos D1 Esp8266 and love the end result. But for this project size is a bit of a concern so I was curious can I desolder the Esp8266 from the WeMos D1 and then just supply the Esp8266 with power? Basically just using the WeMos D1 to upload code to the Esp8266?
Let me know if. Also if this is hard to understand please let me know I will try and reword the questions lol
