Airplane mode

I'm going to fly with 10 Metawear R and I need to turn the boards off (like when they arrive via mail). 

 Is there a way to perform a reset that will put the boards in an off state, and switch them on again just when connected via USB? 


PS: already considering creating a small Faraday cage to transport them, definitely not ideal.


  • The only way I know of to turn them off is to unhook the battery (which is soldered to the board).  An anti-static bag will cut down on the transmission range,  as will a metal case.  I've travelled with 30 units at a time without issues.  The onboard WIFI and other phones are probably putting out more interference etc. than your Metawear devices will.
