In a first for this channel, Chris does an unboxing video (and brief teardown) of the Joulescope. Matt Liberty, creator of the Joulescope, sent a replacement unit to Chris after a unit issue. This unit will be used to measure current on the ABC Board in upcoming videos. Chris hopes to measure how long the ABC board will be able to survive in the field without charging via a solar panel.
The Joulescope is a high dynamic range measurement device, which is good at quickly switching between measuring the low current of a sleep state on microcontroller and then measuring the much higher current draw of a transmit cycle on something like a wifi or cellular modem.
