iTracker RAK8212 power consumption issue
I was successfully running the iTracker sample from GitHub on the RAK8212.
Now even if I switch off the Quectel Module and switch off BLE advertising,
it needs around 3mA(4V) on the battery plug.
I also tried to set all the Sensors to "power down" saving me around 200µA.
What could it be that consumes that amount of energy?
Did you succeed in finding the reason?
Did not found the reason jet. More investigation needed
@lo hello, there can you help me to flash Itracker firmware on RAK8212?
actually, I want to make GPS tracking device using this RAK8212
but there is no document available for GPS and GPRS!
@futechiot hello, you can use this firmware to do it.
Hello, any solution to the power consumption issue? Which OS are you using on the RAK device?
RUI is the platform firmware for itracker modules including RAK8212, and it is developed based on FreeRTOS. You can find the source code of RUI here: https://github.com/RAKWireless/RUI_itracker_platform_firmware
@lo Hello Lo,
I'm also trying to save Energy too on RAK8212. When i switch off Quectel and power off nrf52 with sleep mode, i consume about 50mA.
How did you get 3mA? Did you make some hardware mods on board? Can you help me?
