Default Power for a VDSL modem/router.

In article ,
NY wrote:

Part of the problem with LED bulbs is that they may be remote controlled (eg
Philips Hue) and so there is permanent power to the bulb's contacts, with a
quiescent current to drive the electronics that listens for "switch on"
signals from a phone app, Alexa or a remote RF-driven light switch. I wonder
what that quiescent power consumption is in that situation.

Someone measured between 0 and 0.3 watts for Hue bulbs:


The Zigbee network used for Hue is designed to have very low power
consumption - the switches can run for a year or more on a battery,
though the bulbs will use more as they act as relays. Wi-fi is likely
to use substantially more.
