I got a DROK digital multimeter and I decided to find out just how much power the PINE64 consumes running headless.
The measurements were taken on my 1GB PINE64 running longsleep’s Ubuntu image. The measured voltage from the powerbank is 5.06V.
|CPU @ 1152MHz||CPU @ 480MHz|
|WiFi / BT module plugged in||260mA (1.32W)||200mA (1.01W)|
|WiFi / BT module removed||250mA (1.27W)||190mA (0.96W)|
This is not by any means a proper scientific test, but it gives an idea of what to expect. Got any tips for reducing power consumption? Feel free to share them in the comments below.
