    I’m not an expert on this, but I fried a similar I2C device that can only tolerate 3.3v by using it with a 5v system. I had a bmp085 hooked up to an arduino’s 3.3v and directly to A4/A5 for I2C without any logic shifters. It worked fine for about 10 days and then died.

    I think it’s best to use a level shifter, but maybe I’m missing something. Unfortunately for me the BMP085 is $20…

    Be careful with running this without a logic level shifter if using a 5v arduino. The quickstart guide shows it setup and connected without a shifter. It works fine without one for a while… mine worked for about 7 days before showing strange data and dieing. Time to buy a new one and a LLS.

    Has anyone used these in freezing temperatures? I’m somewhat concerned about ice damaging them, but would like to leave it up year round if other have had success.

No public wish lists :(
