WeMos D1 mini Lite

WeMos D1 mini Lite…again I find myself writing about WeMos IoT products. The D1 mini series now consists of the regular 4MB D1 mini V2.x, the 16MB D1 mini Pro plus the 1MB D1 mini Lite.

  • ESP8285(!)WeMos D1 mini Lite
  • 11 GPIO pins, all except D0 support interrupt/PWM/I2C/one-wire
  • 1 analog input (3.2V max input)
  • 1 Micro USB connection
  • 1MB Flash
  • 500mA resettable fuse

Yes, you got that right. The WeMos D1 mini Lite sports an ESP8285, a WiFi chip Espressif designed for wearable computing. Contrary to its older brother, the famous ESP8266, it’s got 1MB flash on-board.

I wrote earlier in 2016 about a Tindie dev board that also hosts an ESP8285 when I proved that this chip supports the NodeMCU firmware. While that board is a bit smaller and has got support for a LiPo connector and an external antenna its $19.95 price tag is hard to swallow. And the WeMos board?

The WeMos D1 mini Lite currently sells for $3!
