I am trying to power-On my ESP-8266-01 chip with Li-CR2032 battery (coin cell with 3.0V & 220mAH).
Esp is getting powered on, but within 30 seconds battery is getting drained.
After debugging further, I found that if CH_PD pin is pulled high, battery goes down very fast,
but if I keep CH_PD dangling, battery is somewhat stable ( but no Wi-Fi from Esp).
can you let me know if I am trying something wrong here?
Any insight will be helpful.
CH_PD, chip enable pin of ESP8266EX, is active high and cannot be dangled, otherwise its electrical level will be uncertain.
For battery application, you can refer to below link for details.
More questions, please feel free to let us know.
