In most IoT projects, your sensing device is likely to be left unattended for a few months or even years. This is why power consumption is an important factor when selecting your IoT hardware platform.
In this test we explored how many times a Ubidots variable can be updated using Linkit’s WiFi with the 1000mAh battery it ships with. If the module goes into deep sleep between every post, then it would last quite long with a single battery charge:
If you send data every second
If you send data every minute
Iif you send data every 5 minutes
If you send data every hour!
