I constantly read about the low power consumption of BLE and websites stating
Power consumption: Since a Bluetooth low energy device is in sleep mode most of the time - the maximum/peak current draw is only 15 mA and the average current draw is of only about 1 uA.
However whats confusing me is, when they mention sleep mode, does this mean the BLE module is not adverstising itself to the world and is undiscoverable?
I am trying to find out what actually occurs in sleep mode.
I am working on a small home project, and trying to find the least power hungry BLE, currently i have a standard BT module and when is discoverable mode it uses anywhere between 4mAH -30Mah and this is way to much.
Is it possible to get the 0.1mAH and still have the module advertising and then connect once a iPhone becomes in pairing range>?
