WeMos D1 mini (esp8266), the three type of sleep mode to manage energy savings – Part 4

When you create a new IoT project probably you need to connect microcontroller to a battary power source, but if you don’t use a power saving options your battery will run out in no time.
As a lot of IoT microcontroller, WeMos D1 mini have some power saving mode.
The types are modem sleep, light sleep and deep sleep.
