Hi Arron , Hunter Wasn Gispyblue etc. I though I would let people know and also, I hope Heltec make sure their distributors know that they have supplied Capsules without programming board so product useless. Heltec can you supply the missing board ?
I often order via Aliexpress as I get a donation to a local charity via the site .
I ordered the CubeCell Capsule which arived today and was supplied in an unexpected way:
First it came with no programming board so product useless, I can not use Help needed here !
Second It came with 80 ma Battery prefitted, I had got batteries separatly as expected it to come without!
I have used the boards and they are great. an will be ordering many more as I can place in Custmom boxes with solar panels on the box ace.
While the capsule is very novel I see it only used in special cases such as the purpose I had for it of Monitoring transit of packages with the MPU9250. The unit can be placed lose in a box and sent though transport system and monitored at different points. General use is limited as they are not easy to mount.
I enclose pictures of the capsue received and of one of my CubeCell sensors that has environmental monitoring ( T,H,P,AQ,) and soil moisture probe capability. This has been trialled and even in the poor winter sun in the UK has kept the batteries fully changed with reporting every 5 minutes .
Heltec can you ensure that your distributors make sure they supply at lease one programming Boards with each order and can some one please get me a programmng Board Thanks.
