I wish there was at least a single and clear, official example that proves that these board can be really low power, while illustrating all the peripheral that are onboard.
There are a lot of posts around unexpected power consumption, so it would benefit many people (btw the product page is so much of a mess...).
I spent a lot of time trying to figure out why I never was able to achieve less than 1mA on a Mini-WirelessHW-433Mhz... until I realized it git MUCH better when I fed 3.3V to the VIN pin instead of directly to VCC.
I had read all the posts of the forum and even unsoldered some pullups (that Rick told would go, but they are still on the boards I recently purchased). It did not change much, but feeding 3V max on VCC but anything higher through VIN made a big improvement (this is somehow counter intuitive to me as the regulator should make it worse, not better?!)
