Is it?

Very Similar to A+
This shows us clearly that the Zero uses pretty much the same amount of ‘juice’ as the A+. This is hardly surprising, given that the processor is the same and there’s not a lot else on either board (just USB keyboard/mouse dongle). They both draw about 100 mA when idle and 140 mA when pushed. It’s possible that the peak current on loading LXDE is a tad higher on the Zero because the CPU is overclocked to 1 GHz and the core L2 cache is also clocked faster – but it could equally just be random measurement error. WJDK!

Voltage under load was 5.09V, so the Pi Zero uses 0.5-0.7 Watts.




That power draw is running wide open.

Ok,

So Raspberry Pi Zero is out for $5.  https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/raspberry-pi-zero/

This makes the fully functional Raspberry Pi competitive with Ardunio for taggers and give alot more capability.

Time to resurrect this thread?
