I found the documented consumption low with 185mA/3V=0.5W
Is is true with all the sensors active ?
I plan to use the HAT inside an autonomous sailing boat and the consumption is very important.
My actual RTL-SDR USB key use 11W !!!!!

Hello!
You are right, the current consumption is 185mA at room temperature. The HAT is powered by 3.3V not 3V. However, this is the consumption of the HAT only and does not include the Raspberry Pi.
Are you sure, that the USB device draws 11W? This would be 2.2A and I do not believe, that the Raspberry Pi could deliver such high currents via USB at all.
Regards,
Thomas

Hi,
Consumption Raspberry PI3 + Moitessier Hat, is on 12V, about 1A, so about 12W.
Regards.
