- FT-8x7 CAT Emulator + IFR: 50 mA @12V
- FT-8x7 CAT Emulator alone: 17 mA @12V
So the I.F.R. with a white/blue LCD and my choice of resistor values (for backlight intensity) drains 50-17 = 33 mA.
It's not much (could be lower?), the whole equipment could be powered off a 9V rechargeable battery or a 7.4V Li-ion cell.
