I’m installing a GL-X750 (Spitz) in an RV where it runs from batteries (and solar) most of the time and I’m wondering how to reduce power consumption to the minimum. Does anyone have experience with that or suggestions?
I did some tests:
- system idle with 2.4Ghz Wifi running in STA+AP mode ~1.8W-1.9W (~150-160mA@12V)
- add 5.2Ghz AP brings it up to ~180mA @12V
- add cellular w/EP06 goes to ~190-200mA @12V
I’m wondering whether under-clocking could help, but I doubt it. Any other tricks to reduce power consumption?
Is there a way to put the system into a timed-sleep? I suspect not and would have to implement that by cutting power from the outside…
