Is it possible to remove the leds on the gprs v2 shield?

I am trying to achieve maximum power saving and I heard that the leds consume up to 15mA, so -> 2 leds less meaning up to 30mA of current saved.

if I remove them (using a soldering iron) will it damage anything? (as long as I have a steady hand and dont burn anything :stuck_out_tongue: )


Removing their series resistors might be easier.

I agree, I guess it is safe to remove those?

Why should it cause a problem?

As long the leds are just part of the output of a gpio it shouldnt, but if its connected in any other way it might
