How much power is my Android mini PC consuming in reality?

Postby n3wb13 » Sat May 11, 2013 7:48 am

I wonder how can I calculate how much power is my Android mini PC consuming in reality, like how many Watts it needs every hour?

The device's manual say the power supply must be 5V/2A so according to the equation below, the device consumes 10 Watts / hour?

Code: Select all

Power (Watts) = Voltage (Volts) * Current (Amps)


Can anybody help me please?

Without opening the obviously closed door to the wonderful world of mathematics, the easiest way is to buy a power meter and plug it in before the PSU. Done deal actually.

The markings on the PSU is what it can deliver Max.

Signature? Signature!
