EnGenius ESR750H Power Consumption
Since power consumption is a pretty big deal these days, we wanted to run some simple power consumption tests on the various routers that we had. To measure idle usage, we reset each wireless router to the default settings and plugged them with no devices connected to them. We then measured the power draw from each router at the wall with our P3 International P4400 Kill-A-Watt electric usage monitor.
Benchmark Results: Power consumption for the EnGenius ESR750H turned out to be very good for your power bill and runs with very low power consumption at idle.
Since most people will have their routers turned on for 24-hour a day operation, we think that examining power usage is an important benchmark. Total cost of ownership (TCO) is an important financial estimate that helps consumers direct and indirect costs of a product. In our TCO calculation we will be figuring up how much it costs to have a wireless router running per year in an idle state with the unit being installed 24-hours a day. We will be using 12.7 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh) based on the bureau of labor statistics report from April 2012 showing that amount as the national average.
Benchmark Results: The EnGenius ESR750H is a very power efficient router that should save you money over the life of the unit.
