This week I used a power usage meter to look at the power consumption of having the Vectrix connected to the power grid.
The result for my Vectrix are quite alarming!
The standby consumption is 107W. That is without any fans or display running. I checked this consumption several times before and after a delayed charge cycle and it was always 107W
I left the power meter connected for exactly 24 hours, withing these 24 hours it did one (delayed) charge cycle to take it from 35% (6 bars) capacity to 100% (17 bars). This is the charge I need after my ride home from work.
The total power consumption for the 24 hours was 5,kWh. This means if you leave your Vectrix connected to the power grid you waste 2,kWh per day!
I find this shocking, a bike which presents itself as a environmental friendly bike should not have such an outrageous standby usage.
I will get a clock that switches power on and off and will give my Vectrix 5 hours of electricity per night in order to restrict the power waste.
So my advice, don't leave the Vectrix connected to the power grid any longer than necessary!
