ESP8266/ESP-12F current logger with INA226 (I2C)
I built this to measure and log microamp currents over a time period, and access the data via wifi.
It sort of works right now, but the resolution is poor (100uA). I'll play around with it when I have more time.
Make sure to calculate the maximum amount of current you can put through it yourself, depending on the shunt resistor you use, because I'm too lazy for it right now :)
The INA226 IC is kind of hard to hand solder, but it's possible with flux and patience. No need for solder paste/hot air.
The 3V3 SPI connector is meant for a SD card breakout, but you could also connect a 3V3 SPI display.
The 3V3 voltage regulator can supply up to 1000mA.
The pins necessary for flashing via serial connection are accessible. You can connect a FTDI Basic board for flashing. Short the "FLASH" jumper to flash it via serial.
You can use this library to access the INA226: https://github.com/peterus/INA226Lib/blob/master/examples/Simple/Simple.ino
Here's a working Arduino sketch thrown together by me: https://gist.github.com/Miraculix200/33131e377772574fe5811087e9af2e59
