Date Updated: September 7, 2017 FAQ #4010
What is the current drain for the P9R and P9RA? Conditions are idle: no earphones connected; no audio signal present

Nominal idle current draw:

P9R = 250 mA with display lit;  230 mA with display dark

P9RA = 220 mA with display lit;  200 mA with display dark

All of the above can vary by plus/minus 15 mA.
