Hi,

I wanted to know how much current is consumed by Arduino Mega in normal mode. Has there been any project for power consumption with Arduino Mega ?

BR,

The Arduino Mega draws about 60 mA when you power it from 12V through the built-in regulator.  Much of that power is lost in the regulator.

Yes but I would expect that it takes 60mA no matter how you power it.

yes, and if it is drawing 500 ma, there may be an issue.  ask me how i know...  :smiley-eek-blue:
