    I see some really old threads about power consumption. Has anyone measured the power consumption of a BOLT? How much better (worse?) is it than my old Premier XL? Premier XL manual only states: "120 VAC, 60 Hz, 1.0A". That would be 120 watts. That is probably worse-case, but it is unspecified. I didn't even see that much info on-line about the BOLT.

    My experience is with Bolt 500 and with S3s and also I'm going by memory.

    My guess is the Premier is probably in the range of 25-32 watts.

    The Bolt is in the range of 12-15 watts.

    Again, that is going by memory, but for sure Bolt is going to use less power, probably around half the wattage.
