Power Consumption Estimate

Post by samaero »

Hi there! Any idea what the power consumption of the Midronome is going to be? Trying to figure out if it'll be able to be bus powered or not (2021 Macbook Pros can provide 900ma per TB4 port).

Hi :)

Well the device gets its power from the USB port, which means it is bus powered, there is no other power supply :)

It works with USB 2.0 which means it does not draw at any point more than 500mA (so yes your 2021 Macbook Pro will work with it without any issue).

As for how much of the battery it will drain - not much really, I think you can estimate an average of 50 to 100mA (i.e. 0.25W to 0.5W) depending on how bright you make the display and what you connect on the audio output.
