@Chris-Stratton Aha! That's the datasheet I was looking for. According to that datasheet, section 4.1, maximum voltage is 3.63 (3.3 +/- 10%), so a peak at 3.6 is close but should be okay. Worst case I'll throw a voltage regulator on if I burn anything out in testing, but I don't want a buck due to possible interference.

RE: LiFePo4 Batteries for Omega2/+
Omega2+ Cannot Connect to WiFi Networks containing an apostrophe.
My home wifi network is named
Eagle's Nest(don't judge me, it's the name the house came with when we moved in).
The problem is that it seems the Omega2+ can't "see" (at least through the web GUI) any network with an apostrophe in it. Maybe some bad sanitizing or escaping? Unsure.
Anyway, I tested and confirmed by changing (temporarily) my network SSID to
Eagles Nest-- and it could see and connect. Changed it back, and nada.
Please fix? <3
LiFePo4 Batteries for Omega2/+
Something I've been using for my ESP8266 ESP-12F projects lately (which I only mention because it's a common module and also runs off a native 3.3v) is LiFePo4 batteries.
They're the same size as AA batteries (so mounting holders are easy to come by) but they're about 3.2-3.3v typical output, comparatively cheap, and rechargeable! It works beautifully in the ESP8266's 3.0-3.6v input range, with no need for voltage regulators (details) so less lost energy.
My question is -- what is the acceptable voltage range for the Omega2/Omega2+? I know typical is 3.3v, but what's the acceptable margin and dropout voltage and such?
