I am building a circuit that has a button, which when pressed, should increment a counter. I want to store this counter so that when I power off my circuit, it can be read when I power it back on. However, I am worried about the lifetime of the EEPROM - apparently it is only rated to handle 100k writes.
I am using an Adafruit Trinket Pro. Should I cycle my writes through different addresses so as not to write to a single cell over and over? What other strategies are there? I don't expect to be pressing the button many times in a short period of time - maybe at most one press per minute.
Is there some other external storage option I should look at? I really don't want my little project to die randomly one day because I've exceeded ~100k button presses!
