Wemos D1 Mini with MPU6050

Hey Fellas,
I am trying to run the self-balancing program with Wemos D1 Mini. I do have a problem. The D1 mini IO pins are 3.3v level. Will it be OK to connect MPU6050 to the D1 (D1 and D2) for I2C communication? :confused:

Or do I need to spend some bucks on a level shifter? :frowning:


What did the datasheet for the MPU6050 have to say?

Well, Yeah I read and it said it works on 3.3v and not 5v but the problem is ebay!! They didn't supply enough information about it. When I used 3.3v my MPU would dimout for few micro secs and restart again. This didn't happen with 5v.

Youโ€™ll have to post a link to the product you ordered, and a clear picture of the PCB (if the ebay listing doesnโ€™t have any).


If using a GY-521 board, VCC 5V is recommended. The board has a 3.3V voltage regulator. VCC 3.3V is too low.

hello what coding for wemos with MPU6050 can someone help mee?? please
