Power consumption with no reception

I have tried powering down the module but it seems to power back on, but I was wondering do I even need to bother doing this? Will there be higher power consumption if there is no reception and it is searching for a network?

Hi @res-thomas ,

The module consumes high power in idle mode according to its sleep or off state. Please see the manual of the module you are using.

EC25 Mini PCIe Hardware Design - Section 6.6 Current Consumption
LE910C1 Hardware User Guide - Table 17.Current Consumption

Also, refer to the module’s AT command manual to turn off the module using the AT command.
