Over the past weekend I've finished my latest project: Netduino Weatherstation. You can read all about it on my blog.

 

I connected some different sensors that I had and made the Netduino talk to my Windows Phone. No need to step out of the house, or even out of bed to check the weather :-)

Maybe someone can comment why it works with my 5V 1A 2200 mah power bank, USB also delivers 5V so I figured it could work but brownouts could be a problem?

Really cool project!!! Thanks for sharing.

 

Are you using a Netduino 2? If so, I see the specs and it requires an input of 7.5 - 9.0 VDC or USB powered. You are not using USB powered, right? If so, that's a question for Chris on how is it still works being under powered?

 

Great job once again!!!

Thank you Giuliano for your reply!

 

I am using Netduino 2, and I was running on USB power from the power bank I mentioned.

That should be fine then. I don't see any problems with it besides having to recharge the bank. How many days does it last before have to recharge it?

Yes , I have to recharge the bank... and very often. I found this tech spec on the wiki, making me guess that the power consuption is ~53-80 mah. My bank with 2200 mah would in worst case only last for 27 hours.

 

27 hours is way to little, the power bank itself takes 4 hours to charge up so to make this project work I would need a larger power bank. But this project was mostly about "doing it": assemble the parts, program some logic and DIY stuff :-). To make this project work I think I would draw power from a garage or something, and have longer wires for my sensors so I could get them outside.
