Playing around with a gas sensor (mics-6814) ... Connected via ADC (ads1015) to a RPi Zero. Operated at a current of 5V.
Is it normal that the sensor is getting pretty warm and also smells a bit?

turns out: using the sensor with 3.3V solves all the issues.

Still: They sell the sensor as 3.3V - 5V compatible.
