I think that good quality power source is a very important aspect to have a stable MySensors network or any other projects.
In this forum there are a lot of people facing problems that are solved by improving how they power their projects, but despite that I think that all related information is scattered in the forum and not always easy to find or to relate.
So, why not bring this amazing community together and point here some good practices on how to power our nodes?
I would like to start this by addressing first two topics, "approved" power adaptors and bypass capacitors.
- Cellphone chargers
- HLK PM01 (toAddLink)
(What is a bypass capacitor: http://www.learningaboutelectronics.com/Articles/What-is-a-bypass-capacitor.html)
- NRF24L01: To discuss in this thread
- ESP8266: 470uF as close as possible to Vin and GND pins
Please add your opinions and knowledge about this topic, my goal is to keep this post up to date with shared information.
For example, what are the values that you recommend for the NRF24L01 and why? I saw people mentioning 4.5uF, 10uF and 47uF. Personally I'm using the latter and I have no issues.
Thank you all.
