Re: (TECH)Battery Usage when the RePhone is turned off

The two batteries I used were the crazyfly 3.7V 240mAh and another battery I had (3.7V 290mAh). Both went flat after being left plugged into the RePhone for a couple days in the 'OFF' state. I did some tests and found that the Rephone itself draws 3.724mA while in the 'OFF' state and 4.256mA if it's...

Re: (TECH)Battery Usage when the RePhone is turned off

Yeah I believe it is likely the case that the RePhone consumes a bit of current when in "OFF" mode. I have now drained 2 LiPo batteries down past the point of no return by leaving them plugged into the unit for a couple days (making sure the unit was OFF each time I left it). The RePhone's USB charg...

Re: Rephone Audio -> sound very low

If your sound is very low, try flipping the audio board around and plug it in the other way. This happened to me lol.

I'm amazed it still works when you hook it up backward.

Re: weird signs on serial monitor

You've likely had the wrong baud rate selected at the bottom right of the serial monitor. Whatever it says in your code sample (ie 115200) select that rate in the drop-down.

Re: Arduino IDE Blank Serial Monitor issue

I believe I read somewhere that the serial monitor actually works on the alternate COM port (i.e. you load up code on COM3, use the serial monitor on COM4) but I can't seem to get it to work myself. You'll also have to match the baud rates (if it's 115200 baud in your code, you'll have to match the ...

Re: (TECH) - RePhone - No USB connection

Hey I noticed something that you might be running into. Once plugged into USB, and even though I power it up with the power button and the LED turns green, most of the time the Rephone doesn't actually appear in my Device manager. I have to hold the power button down until the LED turns red and then...
