T-Beam excessive power drain

Hi,

power drain of my T-Beams has grown considerably all of a sudden and I’m pretty sure it’s not a hardware issue. I can’t point my finger at a particular firmware release, but I remember noticing it perhaps in late spring this year after an update.

On default settings, my T-Beams swing from 170 mA to 8 mA, averaging a worrying 65 mA. AFAIK that’s more than 3 times the original power consumption.

Has anyone noticed that?

Cheers
