@roo-ster Thanks for that, yes figured that is the only way... the Qdunio after further research has an embedded IC that performs some of this function.

Measuring LiPo Charge
Does anyone have any idea's / code on how to measure charge level on the attached battery?
I have some code from the Qduino that I am trying to replicate on the LOLIN - https://github.com/sparkfun/Arduino_Boards/blob/master/sparkfun/avr/Qduino/examples/fuelGauge/fuelGauge.ino
Any input appreciated.
RE: SHT Shield temperature way off
@ralphwiggum Much has beed written about this on the old Forum (and was lost :( ), it seems that there is residual heat from the Wemos D1 that due to the proximity of the sensor means the value is wrong. I have evidence of this, and the only way to fix, it put the shield on then end of a cable.... I know, this defeats the purpose.....
If anyone else has found a way to fix this, I'd like it fixed!!

RE: WemosD1 Battery Shield
Thanks All, I've tested a few batteries now... and will share a simple log from Thingspeak showing the data.
I'm going to over the next few days move the Battery to directly connect to the Wemos and run the test again.
Will come back to you.

RE: Wemos and DHT11 four pin
@manyakos I've been "playing" with Wemos / DHT / BME / HTU etc for a year now... my advice DONT buy a Wemos Shield with the sensor / much is writen about this as it is inaccurate as too close to the Wemos / heat.
I started here - @PaulRB was on the "Old Forum" and this was really useful to get me started.
RE: Dear Wemos. Where is the old forum, everything is deleted!
@PaulRB Oh dear, will be sorry to see you "go"... BTW where do you frequent BTW of Forums, would like to "stay in touch" re all things Wemo / Temp etc :)
WemosD1 Battery Shield
Does anyone have any first hand experience here?
https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Battery-Shield-For-WeMos-D1-mini-single-lithium-battery-charging-boost/1331105_32679485736.html - I see they are not being sold any more????
I'm trying a number of options in building my Wifi Temp Sensors based on some of this previous info shared here :100:
When I use a 14550 AA 500-700mAh Battery to the LiPo port, it runs flat after about 1-2 days... when I connect the battery directly to the Wemos / no Shield it can last for weeks.
Any thoughts / suggestions?
