via RasPi.TVEach time a new Pi comes out, I usually publish some power consumption figures, mainly for those people who want to estimate battery durations. So my tests are quite simple.
With just an HDMI screen and a USB keyboard/mouse dongle connected, the Pi current usage was measured using my non-invasive UNI-T clamp meter and a slightly mutilated Anker USB-C lead (to be able to clamp round just the red +ve wire I have to open it up) connected to the Tronsmart 3A power supply I’ve been happily using with my Pi4B. In the past I’ve used my e-Meter AND this clamp meter with a bench PSU and all the readings have agreed closely with each other. This time, rather than destroy TWO USB-C cables I went with just the clamp meter.See more!Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit!
