Learning by Failing - How to get 15x longer LoRaWAN battery life?
Battery-powered IoT nodes need to run reliably for a long time without changing batteries.
Coin cells don’t have enough capacity to run a LoRaWAN transmitter for more than about 70 days. Multiple battery packs are expensive. So what can be done to get years of life from a single battery? Which techniques work and which don’t?
Learn from my mistakes so you don’t have to make them yourself!
