High current consumption in deep sleep: 80 mA
averri last edited by averri
Hi, I'm testing GPy on deep sleep mode, and the current consumption is around 80 mA. I was expecting something in the uA range, do you know what's wrong?
I'm invoking the deep sleep with:
import machine machine.deepsleep(10000)
I have a boot.py file with WiFi configuration. I'm using GPy v1.0.

I'm having the same problem. When I arrive at home a will insert a SIM card and check if the current consumption decrease.
I have insert a SIM card. And make lte.deinit() and de current consumption in deepsleep drop to 0.022 mA.
@jcaron No, I don't have a SIM card. Is it possible to disable the LTE without the SIM card?

@averri Do you have a SIM card in the module? IIRC
LTE.deinit()won't work without one.
@robert-hh The LTE deinit is not working, please see the message above.
It does not work. I'm using the following code:
import pycom import time import json import machine from mqtt import MQTTClient from network import WLAN, LTE def sleep(millis): print('Going to sleep...') lte = LTE() lte.deinit() machine.deepsleep(millis) def handler(topic, data): print(topic, data) payload = json.loads(data.decode('utf-8')) msg = payload['msg'] if 'msg' in payload else None if msg == 'deepSleep': # Here we enter deep sleep. sleep(10000) def connect_mqtt(): """Connects to the MQTT queue.""" print('Connecting to the MQTT server...') c = MQTTClient('alex-device', 'xxx', port=1883, user='xxx', password='xxx') c.set_callback(handler) c.connect() c.publish('inTest', 'Device connected!') c.subscribe('outTest') return c def wait_for_wlan(): while True: if WLAN().mode() == WLAN.STA: break else: time.sleep(0.5) def main(): wait_for_wlan() c = connect_mqtt() while True: time.sleep(0.5) # Check MQTT message. c.check_msg() if __name__ == '__main__': main()

@averri You have to de-init the LTE modem.
