Battery lifetime is shorter than expected

Q: We used the Ydoc Power Consumption Calculator (available here) for the necessary battery capacity.

After a while, the batteries run out quicker than expected according to the value found in the calculation tool.

A: Check the log file on regular base for WDT messages.

WDTs are causing extra strain and will drain the batteries. Search for the root cause and reconfigure the data logger.

T: Enable battery protection and monitor power consumption, especially on battery powered Data Loggers.

Check this FAQ to setup a Power Monitor for the Data Logger.
