With the 2.9″ ESPaper module you can display data retrieved over WiFi on an ePaper with little effort. The integrated ESP8266 Wroom-02 module updates the 296×128 B&W ePaper display over the SPI bus. The module also features a charging circuit for LiPo batteries and a JST connector which allows you to run the module for weeks or even months from a battery. How long the module can be run from battery mostly depends on the update frequency and the battery capacity. In tests we could run the module from a 800mAh LiPo battery for several weeks by updating weather information every 20 minutes.

The open sourced Minigrafx is available on Github and provides a driver and examples to get quickly started with programming the module. We also provide a WeatherStation sample app which lets you get started quickly

    Very interesting product.
    Assembling is easy.
    Programming is good described.

    This product is a good prototype for a battery driven module.
    I use it, but I will wait for a version with a larger display.

    One drawback:
    The e-ink display looks better with no glas in front of it.

      Thank you Andreas for the kind words. Just like you we’re looking forward to improving our products.

    Very nice unit. Only took me an hour of tinkering to get the demo weather code working. The instructions are clear and without my lack of attention to detail, my typos etc. it would have been a lot faster.
    I lookforward to hacking it to display other information.
