I plan to have a battery powered device which needs to send it's data ultimately to a mobile app. I have been reading about esp mesh and it looks like this could help me with a lot of the design problems I am thinking about.

At the moment, my prototype uses esp now to connect to another esp to send the data then goes into deep sleep.

Does anyone know what the overhead of switching this to having the device join an existing mesh as a leaf node, send the data to the root and then go to deep sleep is Vs a straight espNow send?
