Hi there,

I want to use the Open Log Artemis during a study. I want to configure it to take 5 measure per seconde and my battery is about 500mAh.

What is the battery life? My goal is to reach one week.

Thank you

Bastien

If you're logging 5 times a second, that doesn't give much time for the openlog to sleep. Looks like the openlog needs 20mA to do it's thing and that would give you less than a full day per charge on a 500mAh battery. I'd shoot for a much larger battery to give longer run time, 4500mAh might work, 5000 or 6000 should probably be enough but you'd need to do some testing to be sure.

If you switch logging to once every 5 seconds, you could put the board to sleep between measurements and that would help with battery life.
