This what I did: I created a small python script that writes the current time to a file on the SD card, each 5 minutes. I used a power b...
you're a star. Thanks a lot. you pushed me in the right direction.
I was able to switch off the WiFi and I would expect power consumption will dramatically decrease.
I will do some testing to figure out what the power consumption is in both scenarios (with and without WiFi).
Thanks again
