Raspberry Pi Power Consumption Data #RaspberryPi @Raspberry_Pi
Via raspberrypi-spy.co.uk, an interesting article on the power consumed by Raspberry Pi single board computers.
Power consumption on the Raspberry Pi is something we have to consider when building Pi projects. This is especially true when those projects are powered from batteries. Knowing how much current your Pi is going to draw allows you to determine what batteries to use and how long it is likely to run.
In this post we’ll present the results of our Pi power measurements. The models tested were: Pi A+, Pi B+, Pi 2 B, Pi 3 B, Pi 3 B+, Pi 3 A+

Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
