Having just seen the daily blog entry http://jeelabs.org/2010/09/16/meet-the-aa-power-board/ I have finally started to consider the power consumption of my wireless flash triggers.
Up until now I haven't paid any attention to power consumption. Not even an idle. The batteries last a days worth of shooting with ease, and then they go in the charger again. However with just a single AA, the consumption will be higher, so I really should start being a little less greedy with my current munching. Although not quite to the extent of Stef ;-)
I've had a look through the weblogs, and although there are many entries regarding power saving, none cover an issue which is crucial to me. Namely how the different power saving techniques impact the response time of the JeeNode. I'm particularly concerned with how long a "Snoozed" JeeNode will take to wake up and handle an inbound RFM12B message compared to a "wide-awake" JeeNode.
I appreciate that my particular application is rather more time critical than most, so it's a bit of a long shot question.
