What SparkFun Thing do you have, since the one I know has a USB-UART convertor on-board. :?

(Most of) these projects don't use a development board like the SparkFun Thing, NodeMCU or Wemos, but a single ESP module (like an ESP-01 or ESP-12) combined with it a low external component count (like drivers for I/O) and an optimized low-loss DC-DC convertor. :idea:

#83769 again:
did you check it is going into deepsleep?
did you check the onewirebus is not going low in depsleep and drains the battery via the pull-ups?
is there any other "periphery" connected?
what arduino esp-core versions are you using?

my "weather-sensor" runs on one 1600mAh LiFePO cell for appr. one year with 15min intervals

#83770 It's going into deepsleep
I still need to change the onewire to parasitic mode
There's nothing else connected
I'm using Espressif 8266 version 2.2.3
