To measure power consumption we use a killawatt meter and measure the total system power draw at the wall. We run three different use-case scenarios for 5 minutes and take the average reading.
Power consumption was on the low side, especially at idle. We are not sure why this was the case but we can’t complain as less power consumption means lower electric bills.
