@Robert thanks for raising this question. I am wondering the same thing, as I love to support @wemos and want to develop products using their devices. The Pro finally has the BAT pin also, which I was eagerly waiting for. I hope @wemos plans to add a BAT pin to the Lite version also, that would be epic!
I love breaking, creating and fixing things.

RE: Are Wemos LOLIN32 and LOLIN32 pro dead?
RE: Thoughts on the new lolin32 lite?
I just saw that they published this new board and also removed the old lolin32 from Aliexpress, wondering about their plans. The Lite version seems to use the same Li-Po charging IC and power LDO, just the serial IC is different. I would guess in overall you would get pretty much the same power consumptions, just a smaller board. And again they didn't add LDO EN pin, neither BAT + pin ; (
The board looks sexy though, nice work!
RE: LOLIN32 V1.0.0 is release!
@wemos @msx @deshipu yea a divider is easy to add on an external board, that is how I also proceeded. But I think more important for the next version is to breakout the battery pin and LDO EN pin would be also very nice, like Adafruit did. I would love to hear your opinion and if there is any plans to update the board, would be epic if we can make a poll or something what to update ? If anyone is interested I am building sumorobots, using the lolin32.
RE: LOLIN32 Bricked with a delay(10) in loop()
I am having the same problem now, trying to figure it out :D
the program seems to work, but I am unable to upload via cable or WiFi OTA
after many trials it finally uploaded again, may be try to unplug also, etc
I let it sit plugged in for a while and then uploaded
RE: Lolin32 power draw
@josef I also hope those things get updated in new version, but it will surely take some time to release a new version. For my project I need Li-Po pin and 3V3 LDO enable pin, so I can turn off things while charging the Li-Po. @wemos thanks for the super great work you are doing at an unbeatable price, keep it up!
