We consider the solution $u_p$ to the Neumann problem for the $p$--Laplacian equation with the normal component of the flux across the boundary given by $g\in L^\infty(\partial\Omega)$. We study the behaviour of $u_p$ as $p$ goes to $1$ showing that they converge to a measurable function $u$ and the gradients $|\nabla u_p|^{p-2}\nabla u_p$ converge to a vector field $z$. We prove that $z$ is bounded and that the properties of $u$ depend on the size of $g$ measured in a suitable norm: if $g$ is small enough, then $u$ is a function of bounded variation (it vanishes on the whole domain, when $g$ is very small) while if $g$ is large enough, then $u$ takes the value $\infty$ on a set of positive measure. We also prove that in the first case, $u$ is a solution to a limit problem that involves the $1-$Laplacian. Finally, explicit examples are shown.
