We’re doing a deep dive into deep sleep! Thanks to PCB Way for sponsoring the videos - https://www.PCBWay.com/?from=atomic

The ESP32 e-Paper weather display lasted exactly 2 months on its 1000mAh battery. It achieves this by spending most of its time in deep sleep, only waking up every 30 minutes to get a fresh forecast and update the display.

We’re going to look at:

[0:00] Intro [1:33] How to get into deep sleep [1:42] Waking up by using a timer [2:56] Waking up by GPIO pins (single and multiple) [5:26] Waking up with the touch sensors [6:13] How to know why you were woken up? [7:37] How to persist state during deep sleep? [8:24] How much current do we use in deep sleep?

It’s pretty interesting stuff and opens up some great possibilities.

Here’s a link to one of @Andreas Spiess videos (the guy with the Swiss accent) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajt7vtgKNNM he’s got a bunch more videos measuring different ESP32 boards - definitely worth having a watch.
