Has anyone tested RAX80/RAX120 with a Kill-A-Watt?

If so, how many watts does the Kill-A-Watt say is being used when the router is idle vs performing a speedtest?

Because I am NOT going to spend my money on a draft router that does not even implement the full Wi-Fi 6 802.11ax spec.  Netgear discloses in the RAX120 fine print: "This router does not support some of the mandatory features ratified in Draft 3.0 of IEEE 802.11AX specification, such as Uplink OFDMA, Target Wake Time, and BSS Coloring. "

 

BUT I am still curious how much of a power hog it is -- even though I will never buy it.  An estimate in dollars for the yearly operating costs of any 'always on' device is watts.
