Does anyone have use the external power supply port on location beacon ?
Cannot find any technical specification related to these ports (voltage ? 3.3 V ?). The only documentation I found were : https://community.estimote.com/hc/en-us/articles/217429867-What-is-GPIO-https://community.estimote.com/hc/en-us/articles/219001708-How-to-set-up-GPIO-in-Location-Beacons-
Here are the specs (:

For external power supply, you should be looking at the VCC IN … so yeah, 3.3 V (:
Perfect, looks good.
I understand that you can entirely supply a Location Beacon with GPIO ports? Even if the internal battery is dead?
@Ximun yes, if you provide power via the VCC IN port, we cut the battery off. You could even pull it out at this point! (:
