Amazon IoT Button technology

New Amazon Dash Button Teardown (JK29LP) | Matthew Petroff
"Amazon updated the Dash Button’s hardware... While the form factor and case remained much the same, the internals changed substantially. The major highlights are a switch from Broadcom to Atmel chips, a switch from an Energizer lithium battery to a Duracell alkaline battery, and the addition of Bluetooth Low Energy."

"Overall, the new Dash Button appears to be a revision designed to reduce production cost, centered around a reduction in energy usage, which allows for use of a considerably cheaper, alkaline battery."
