I had 10 TBeams on last night. I had the GPS broadcast seconds set to 375, which could still be flooding the air with rebroadcasts of other TBeam’s GPS rebroadcasts. I still wanted to charge the batteries, so I powered down most tbeams by holding in the power button for 10 or so seconds. There was a blinking blue LED under the right side of the LCD screen. At the point in time that the LCD went black, if the blue LED was on, it remained on, and if it was off, it remained off. I assume the blink routine should be disabled, then LED manually turned off at the point of shutdown.
This morning, I brought my cell phone back into the room to check on the charging status of the remaining on TBeams, but the cell phone said that it was connected, but they were sleeping. The LCD screens are on. Shouldn’t bluetooth be on at the same time? It has been a few minutes and the cell phone still hasn’t connected. I think I set sleep to 60 seconds. I set the cell phone to connect to none, then to connect back to the TBeam, and it connected. I think this might be a bug in the app. It has been like that for a long time, probably back to the Summer. I sent a text message and they appeared on the LCD screens, so they weren’t frozen with the LCD screens on. I see mostly 100% batteries on the cell phone app, but no external power symbols. The 4 TBeams that are still on say they have had last contact within the last 2 minutes. How long should I wait until I receive an update on external power status?
I had complained at one point about the M8N Tbeam being slower to show messages on the LCD screen than the other TBeams. I just realized that I plugged the LORA antenna into the WIFI connector. I switched it to the LORA connector now, and it appears to react at the same time as the other TBeams now.
