I’ve plugged the Plasma Stick 2040 W in, installed Thonny, updated the configuration with WiFi, coordinates, etc, and it runs. I’ve configured main.py to run the weather script, and it runs as expected. Unplugging and re-plugging it in to my PC works and the weather script runs automatically. All running fine.
The problem is that I want to power the Plasma Stick via mains rather than USB and I have a cable for this. I plug the cable in and, after a few white flashing lights, it settles on red. My experimentation seems to indicate that it’s something to do with being unable to access the API, likely either a network issue or an API one. It’s definitely not the original main.py script.
And then I plug it back into my PC and it runs fine - still remembers the WiFi configuration and runs the weather script.
How can I use the weather script without needing to keep it plugged into my PC?
Original instructions which work fine up to the point where I want it to keep running without using my PC. The description in the shop suggests that it should be possible via a power pack: Assembling Wireless Plasma Kit
