@keenanjohnson, this blog may be interesting to you on power management. I remember you talking at the balenaHub Meetup about the challenges with solar power and lowering power usage.
Here is the headline teaser:
Battery: 12V 7.2Ah lead battery life on a Raspberry Pi 3
- Without Morpheus (named after the greek god of sleep and dreams): 43 hours
- With Morpheus (wakeup every 30 mins): ~197h = ~8days
- With Morpheus (wakeup every 60 mins): ~279h = ~11.6 days
- With Morpheus (wakeup every 24h): 490h = ~20.4 days
Ah thanks so much! I’ll take a look.
