Electrical specs for Nighthawk products?

Where can I find electrical specs for Nighthawk products. This information is not available in the manuals. 70W seems like a lot of power for a product that will be running 24/7.

AFAIK, R7000's power consumption is 33.92W.

Do you have a specific model of the Nighthawk device?

 total power consumption or worst case... including all USB drives and both or all 3 radios would be  volts X amps = watts    from power adapter that would be 12x3.5 = 42 watts for R7000 and 60 watts for a r8000 @ 12 volts.......... been awhile but even if the power adapter drew or used  .5 amps @ 120 which seems high  that would only be 30 watts.

Is this max draw or idle draw ?

That's the maximum.

 

In addition, here's a link for other routers.

 

Note: We will update the list to add the new router models.
