Sorry to resurrect a year old topic but I just got here. Are you saying the 3V3 powered ESP8266 is 5V tolerant?

#61103 Hi Dave, long time!

Yes, that's correct. Haven't yet damaged an ESP by connecting it directly to the Tx, Rx pins on a USB to serial board.

#61105 Anand,

Thanks. I also found where the Espressif CEO confirmed this.

I have a project where I want to interface a WeMos D1 mini with a 5V serial device.
