I continue to experiment with different Arduino projects. At this time I am working with 4 accelerometers and a Bluetooth module and am trying to determine which is a good battery to use. From the research that I've done, this is what I have found:
Current draw Arduno Uno: 50 mA (www.gammon.com.au/power) Bluetooth HC-06: 150 mA Sensor GY-521 MPU-6050 (x4): 40 mA
This brings the total to 240mA, I'll just round that to 250mA
As a power supply I am thinking of using an off the shelf 9V battery plugged into the power jack. This provides roughly 500mA for one hour of use.
I would like to run the above by you, to double check my findings and conclusion. Any recommendations, feedback and overall comments are welcomed. My goal is to avoid a glitchy system due to inadequate power and, of course, this:
Thank you all for your time and assistance. Salvador
