    We’ve release several different Mayfly Data Logger hardware versions in the past few years, so I’d need to know which version you’re using.   I’m assuming a v1.0 or 1.1 since you mentioned deactivating the LEDs using the dip switches.   But it also depends on the sampling interval you’re planning to use (time between measurements when the Mayfly is sleeping), active sample duration (time it takes to make a sensor reading) and the total time the Mayfly will be awake during the sampling and recording/transmitting period, what sensors you’ll be using, will you have a microSD card on board that you’ll write to every sample, will there be a telemetry module (wifi, cellular, radio, etc), and what’s the temperature range the station will be subjected to during the deployment.
