Power Measuring Corsair Force LE200B 120 GB

After measuring power consumption of WD Green PC SSD, ADATA SU800 and Sandisk Z410 this is the third examination of an SSD.

These are my measuring values:

  • Idle 0.32 W
  • Read 0.57 W
  • Write 0.56 W

Measuring environment is explained in power measuring ADATA SU800.

Power Measuring WD Green PC SSD 120 GB

After measuring power consumption of ADATA SU800 and Sandisk Z410 this is the third examination of an SSD.

These are my measuring values:

  • Idle 0.33 W
  • Read 0.96 W
  • Write 1.2 W - 1.4 W

tuxad Fedora 27 repository

Like the tuxad Fedora 24 repository there's now also a repo for Fedora 27 currently containing

  • spigot
  • RaspberryJuice
  • py3minepi

Activate it by installing its RPM package:


rpm -i http://ngtx.de/tuxad-f27.rpm

Power Measuring Sandisk Z410

After measuring power consumption of ADATA SU800 this is the second examination of an SSD.

Sandisk Z410 was told to have a low power consumption but I was also skeptical about this. These are my measuring values:

  • Idle 0.37 W
  • Read 0.7 W (max 1.2 W)
  • Write 1.4 W - 1.6 W

Measuring environment is explained in power measuring ADATA SU800.

Power Measuring ADATA SU800

I have a couple of SSDs but some "effects" made me wondering if the technical specs about the power consumption of the SSDs are the same in "normal life".

Especially the ADATA SU800 256 GB SSD seems to drain notebook batteries very quickly if you have a lot of data transfers. These are my measuring values:

  • Idle 0.8 W
  • Read 1.1 W - 1.8 W
  • Write 1.9 W - 2.6 W

Measuring device was a Scopemeter 750. The potential difference was taken on a cascade of 3 resistors with totally 0.3 Ohm. The potential difference was also measured at the same time with 3 other measuring devices which did always show the same voltage values (but didn't have an interface). The 3 resistors were Isabellenhütte precision shunts. The total resistance of 0.3 Ohm was verified with a current source. Supply voltage at the SSD was 5.0 V +/- 0.05 V.
