Hey Everyone,

After a long wait, in the latest drop, I was able to get myself a RAPT Pill! Hopefully, there isn't already another dedicated thread to this. :oops:

Got mine in the mail yesterday and have been playing around with the setup. Watched the Video a couple of times that's linked in the included leaflet. The video mentions to leave it plugged in and charging for a minimum of 24hrs, which will calibrate the battery reading. Once plugged in, a solid red light came on, indicating it was charging and remained on until sometime early this morning.

Q: With no red lights no showing now, does that mean charging has been completed and is ready to move onto the next stage of calibration?

Has anyone else gone through the process and done a couple of brews yet to share their tips and tricks? Keen to hear everyone's thoughts on this. I'm excited about the possibilities of brewing with the RAPT Pill.

Thanks!

EDIT #1: Decided to just press on, figured it was 100% Charged. When unplugging it, it wouldn't go into AP Mode. The only way that I could get it into AP Mode was to plug it back in again, and connect to it then. While plugged in I was able to Register it, get the MAC Address + Validation Code. When I unplugged it, it remained in AP Mode. I was then able to calibrate it. But after letting it sit in the Jug with water that I used it to calibrate it in for some time now it's still in AP Mode, green light flashing, and no Telemetry Received on the RAPT Cloud.

WiFi: Successfully Connected
Registration: Looks like your device has successfully registered.
Diagnostics:
Accelerometer X: 872.86
Accelerometer Y: -13.20
Accelerometer Z: 548.66
Tilt angle: 32.16
Specific gravity: 1.000
ADC2: -38.86
Battery: 100%
Temperature: 29.1
Firmware: 20211130_012833_789fd0f (Latest)

Thoughts? Am I doing something wrong here?

EDIT 2: Disregard. Connected to it Via a laptop instead of the iPhone. Had a look around at the setting. Disconnected from the Wifi. About 15min later, green light stopped flashing, and it appears to be all working now. Perhaps the iPhone was holding a connection with it, leaving it in AP Mode??? Anywho, as you were!🤣

Hmm... i cannot connect mine to wifi because it's asking me for a password and cannot find any info about a password anywhere.

Never mind, im just an idiot who didn't see the quickstart guide.

Password is kegland1 for anyone looking and finds this post.

Hahaha, your not the only one! Got me too initially.

Mine doesn’t seem to be going to sleep? Leaving it horizontal on a table it’s continuing to transmit data, hourly. Thoughts?

It's a bit embarrassing but Kegland could have made it clearer, i watched the youtube video a few times and it made no mention of the devices initial network being password protected, one of the QR codes on the little info leaflet could have gone to the guide but oh well.
