Thank you once again for your thoughtful and thorough reply – as well as for your patience and understanding of my Mayfly ignorance for not having attended a workshop.
I greatly appreciate you sharing your time and knowledge. Your reply above is quite helpful.
The board already has corrosion issues on the main chip- likely humidity related as you mentioned – but it appears to be functioning properly at this point. I will suggest that we purchase a new board (and some desiccant) so we can replace it if/when it fails. There doesn’t seem to be any humidity impacts on the battery.
Our board is simply recording data to a micro sd card and we will be entering it on the network – but I wanted to make sure that it is functioning properly before I created the account and uploaded the data.
Thank you again for your kindness and support. It is greatly appreciated!
