Hi,

I'm using Wemos D1 without any issues.
Benefit is that module contains power connector, so you can easily powered the module from battery etc.
Price is also reasonable.

If you are looking to switch lights or appliances, I would recommend the itead sonoff range of devices. They are inexpensive, easy to program and self contained (including being powered from AC) They also come in a number of formats: modules, smart sockets, light switches, bare pcb, full cooling fan etc.

If you are looking to create a more complex device, My favourite is the Wemos D1 mini mentioned above
