Raspberry Pi 3 B+

My Pi consumes 680 mA:

  • Logitech Optical Mouse Model M-BT85: 80 mA (standby)
  • Apple Keyboard Model A1242: 140 mA (standby)
  • HDMI-Port[1]: 40 mA
  • ...which leaves 420 mA for the Pi with all of the above turned off

Meaning, it runs about TBD 2 hours with one of my green 18650[2].

Raspberry Pi Zero

My Pi consumes 330 mA when idle and about 400 mA when not:

  • Logitech Optical Mouse Model M-BT85: 80 mA (standby)
  • Apple Keyboard Model A1242: 140 mA (standby)
  • HDMI-Port[3]: 40 mA
  • ...which leaves 70 mA for the Pi with all of the above turned off and idle

Meaning, it runs about TBD X hours with one of my green 18650.


  1. Disable with tvservice -o in /etc/rc.local
  2. apparently they don't have the promised 3000mA capacity...
