I want to convert some of my aquirum monitoing project to use Solar power and wondering what luck other people have had with this.
I will be running an ESP8266 board (as its what i already have) and all its doing is every 60 seconds, taking a temp reading and then sending it via wifi to a logging station. So for most of the time it can sleep.
I have seen small 5 volt solar panels that can produce ~900mamp which should be plenty to power this and I was thinking a board like this Solar_Power_Manager_5V_SKU__DFR0559-DFRobot
Can any one tell me what capacity battery they have used to get 24hours run time? I can caculate at max power draw but was hoping to get some real world examples.
