    So I checked on my switronix battery. As far as I can tell, low power preview makes practically no difference (although I was using a 4.7", I assume it will have more of an effect with larger monitors). Sleep seems to give an extra 4% or so, as Andreas already noted.

    I have one of those switronix v-locks that shows time remaining at current power draw, so I'll see what that says next week when my camera is back. Might be more accurate to use the power adapter and an ammeter.

    That is good to know Robert. So not much point in using it currently
