  • Is it possible to power this Thing using a regulated 3.3 volt power supply connected to the 3v3 pin in the I2C header (between the GND and #2 pins)? This is documented in the previous generation Thing’s Hookup Guide (https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/esp8266-thing-hookup-guide/powering-the-thing).

  • The features of this board are great! However, the usb port snapped off after only a couple days of light usage. I got a second board and covered the terminals in epoxy (and under the board where the little plastic alignment posts go through the board). Hopefully this will extend the life of the connector to survive my development phase. If this only used through-hole solder joints for the usb port it would be perfect!

No public wish lists :(
