Power Banks

Ultramic384K BLE can work as autonomous unattended recorder.

Unfortunately the commercial power banks used to recharge smartphones, have got a circuit that stops the power at a defined minimum level of current.

This happens when the UM384k in scheduled mode sleeps between two recordings and the current falls below 1 mA.

Here you can find a way how to modify a standard power bank
