Default How much power does the Bluetooth module use? - 10-13-2009, 12:08 AM

Does bluetooth usage have a measurable effect on battery life? Right now, the only reason I can think I might want bluetooth is for a mouse or maybe a keyboard. Otherwise I have nothing to interface through it.

Can't say exactly how much power bluetooth uses - but it's significantly less than wifi.

If you don't have a current use for bluetooth, it's unlikely you'll suddenly come into need for it.

I have bluetooth on my mini and I rarely turn it on.
