Arduino Low Power - How To Run ATmega328P For a Year On Coin Cell Battery

An Arduino Uno runs less than one day on a 9 V battery because it uses about 45 mA current. Using an Arduino Pro Mini, with a simple modification, the power consumption goes down to 54 μA (0.054 mA) with the 3.3 V version or 23 μA (0.023 mA) with the 5 V version, in power-down sleep. That is 4 years on a 9 V battery with 1,200 mAh capacity or 2,000 times more efficient
