With an Overo Fire mounted on a Tobi I measured about 410mA out of the box. You can drop that by about 200mA if you turn off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Subject: [Gumstix-users] OveroFE and Tobi Current Draw...

 

I have an OveroFE mounted to a Tobi board. Does anyone know how much current should be drawn if the setup is just sitting idle? I am seeing 500mA on mine.

 

Thanks,

 

Greg
