Measuring current is simple. Right? You just take a multimeter, connect it to the two cables, and read the value.
If you want to do the same with a Microcontroller like an Arduino or an ESP, things get a little more complicated. Let's dig into it to see how it works! And which is the best sensor for our projects?
