Pro timer with alternative UNO board, lower power consumption !!

#1 Sheeba
Hello Gunther, hello people,

I have a long-term test today with my new Pro Timer https://forum.lrtimelapse.com/Thread-alt...r-protimer
in which I use a UNO clone made. I have in my new Pro Timer ext software https://forum.lrtimelapse.com/Thread-new...e-extended
a delay time of 12 hours programmd . After 12 hours, the Pro Timer (battery 9V 800mAh) still works well. This has surprised me compared to previous tests and I have measured it !!

Previous board:
Elego UNO R3 ATMEGA328P-PU, Display D1ROBOT:
Display max brightness = 150 mA
Display off = 48mA

New board:
NHdurino UNO ATMEGA 328P-AU, Display D1ROBOT:
Display max brightness = 125 mA
Display off = 25mA

That means nearly half the power consumption in the "Display off" operation !!
Especially for long TL this is very interesting.

I will continue to research !!

Greetings Hans
Still quite a bit more current than my 3.3V "clone":
Display max brightness = 7.1 mA
Display off = 5.5 mA
