Micro-controller woes

I had two ESP8285 micro-controllers fail on me today (probably due to my carelessness). It is pretty frustrating as I was completing the final version of my weather station.

The new version is more compact, increases the protection to the electronic components from water ingress and now features a slanted solar panel. It also has a USB charge port.

I had to add an incline to the solar panel due to pooling of water causing discoloration to the panel of my currently deployed weather station.


I will now have to wait for more parts from China!
