Thank you for taking a look at this and offering me some help... I'm a little new to the Arduino world, but looking forward to using this as part of one of my projects.
I'm planning on creating a simple wearable device that blinks an LED based off of commands it receives from the internet. I plan on using the following...
- Arduino Pro Mini 3.3 V
- ESP8266 Wifi-adapter
From doing a little initial research, I learned that the Arduino Pro Mini is not enough to power the ESP8266. Can anyone clarify this? I need this to be a wearable device, so I can't use another power source as that would make this entire thing bulky. I plan on powering the Arduino through a small LIPO battery.
If this hardware isn't appropriate for this, is there something else that may be more suitable? I've read that you don't even need a pro mini, and I can just use the ESP8266 chip on it's own to accomplish something like this?
