Does anyone have the current draw numbers in continious mode?

Looking to get accurate data on the real power draw while the notecard maintains a cellular data connection. I am trying to see if using the ATN pin pushed from the cloud to the end device is going to work for our application’s power requirements.

Hello @ril3y and welcome to the forum!!!

I just so happen to be sitting in front of an ammeter and a WBNA Notecard connected in continuous mode at this very moment.

calculated using Vrms and powered by a LiPo battery a 4V2

Given my configuration and the reasonably good cellular coverage at my bench, I’m seeing that it is idling around ~43.5mA. Certainly this number will change with your real world demands, but hopefully this gives you a good ballpark to work from.

All the best,
