Efficient SoC

The type of System on a Chip (SoC) can greatly affect battery life. For example, the Dialog DA14580 provides 2x to 3x battery life of Nordic nrf51822 based (e.g. Estimote) beacons and up to x6 the battery life of TI CC254x based-beacons. The newer TI CC2640 and NXP (used be part of Philips Semiconductors) QN902x provide up to x3.5 battery life of the TI CC254x.

The following beacons cost a little more but are worth it if you want to get maximum life from the battery.
