Cubecell in lowpower

i used a battery of 3,7 with my cubecell but in lowpower the curent give me 4mA
is that right?

show how you have it connected? and which cubecell you are talking about?

i have the cubecell HTCC AB01

it might be a short in your connection or your code is leaving pin floating…
mine is connected to a lithium battery that is charged to 4.1v and it draws about 35ua …

btw show your code… it might be your code as well…

Avoid serial communication.

looks like your code sleeps only for few seconds at best… i would recommend reworking your code…

you can also try the lowpower mode by itself and set it to a long period and test.

use a PPKII or a multimeter to measure current while a sleep…
you can also (For testing purposes) use a print statement in the loop to check if the MCU sleeps at all…
Serial.print(".");
it should not print when the lowpower mode is invoked. if it prints then your lowpower mode isn’t working…
