- Jun 23, 2014ok thanks - good to hear to I don't waste effort trying that route.. Id hoped there might be some better efficiency in a BEAM route. I will see if I can get the low power sleep method to work then!

Charles,I cannot tell you much about arduino, but I have done the same with picaxe. I have to say I think it is more efficient than any other SE I have built. A quick check of the ATmega32U4 datasheet confirms that they can be very low power if you disable BOD, ADC, and other unused components, and use the internal resonator at a low clock speed instead of the external crystal.I don't know what library etc you might need, but I know the program size for PWM/flashing LED's and a solar engine will be trivial compared to the space available. I don't think you need a library to sleep, but I could be wrong.Here is my Picaxe turbot by the way: Geppetto's Workbench: BEAM/Picaxe 20x2 Turbot
