Hi all, hoping you guys can help me guess my way through this.
I'm trying to calculate how long I expect a 18650 battery will last when powering my ESP8266 if I'm putting it into deep sleep for 10 seconds, then waking it to do a WiFi scan, then putting it back to sleep for 10 seconds, etc.
According to the technical docs, ESP8266 deep sleep draws 20 microamps, and the 18650 battery I'll be using advertises that it has a capacity of 2500 mah. What I can't seem to find good documentation on is how much juice a single scan of the nearby SSIDs will consume. Anyone have any experience or know something I don't here? How long can I expect this battery to stay afloat?
