Description: Motes shall have a minimum of 3 months autonomous operation on battery power supply
1. Place current probes between the battery and mote.
2. Turn on the mote and allow it to perform normal network operations
3. Measure the average current draw.
4. Divide the power of the battery (mAh) by the average current draw to find the hours in which it can operate
