Welcome back! In this part we’ll explore how we can reduce our power consumption which will allow us to move from 2 AA batteries to a 3V coin cell.

When the whole circuit is operating in logging data mode and at 2.68 volts, it’s taking up 1.06mA. First off this 1mA is much lower than our assumed 2-3mA because we are running at 3V instead of 5V, less voltage means less power consumption. Using the Battery Life Calculator with a 240mAh battery it gives us a estimated battery life of 8 days. Lets see how low we can get our power consumption to!
