Iottawatt user here from Pakistan :).
I am waiting for my iotawatt to be delivered.
I was wondering if any one has figured out the power consumption of iotawatt. My usecase includes using a battery to power the iotawatt. I am trying to figure out how long usage I can squeeze out of a 10000mAh or similar battery.
I will be using the iotawatt to measure my energy consumption. However in my place, we lose main power for a few hours every day. Usually 2-3 hrs for 3 times a day. It varies b/w summer and winter.
So I was thinking power cycling the iotawatt so many times a day can’t be good. There is a good chance the file system may got corrupted. The best way I figured around that was to connect it to a battery bank, and connect the battery bank to a USB power adapted. So when main fails, iotawatt will stay powered on. Now I need a ballpark figure of power consumption for iotawatt to figure out how big a power bank I am gonna need.
Any ideas ?
