In order to isolate the effects of the Belkin Conserve Smart AV power strip and Moneual Sonamu G100 case, we test the average power load over one hour of use.

We also test the Sonamu G100 in two modes. First, we check how much power is used by adding the auxiliary power module. Second, we measure how much power the 300 W Logisys power supply uses on its own. This is done so that we can isolate the effects of the power module.
