Iâd be interested to know which uses less powerâ Zero + USB Module vs
Zero Wirelessâ I presume the latter (newer)â

Ok ok .. I think maybe I might actually part with some cash for a R-Pi
.. this is almost too good to be true .. or is it the next best thing
since Gordon's sliced loaves ... ;)

Given that I don't sell sliced bread ... :-)

I don't have a USB power breakout thingy, so don't know the actual current draw... Don't throw out those exissting Zeros though - plenty of uses for them still!


Oohffs - just got a new bluetooth keyboard thingy for annoying my phone and have just spent a few hours setting up a low power NAS server thingy to freeup a pi-zero that was just too slow on the disks so am well annoyed with the new release so am slightly annoyed - or is that just sourdough?
