With the Homepod meant to be a set of always-on speakers with Siri at your beck and call, we’re sure that there have to be some customers who might be curious as to how much energy the speakers will consume, especially if left on 24/7. For those who are curious, you’re in luck as Apple has recently published the Environmental Report (via MacRumors) for the HomePod.
According to the Cupertino company, “HomePod uses power-efficient components and software that can intelligently power them down during periods of inactivity. For example, through optimized power management features and a high-efficiency power supply, HomePod has been designed to be efficient in its low power mode, where the majority of time is spent.”
Apple also goes on to claim that the HomePod consumes less power than the average LED light bulb (based on the average power consumed by A19 LED bulbs listed on the ENERGY STAR Certified Light Bulbs Version 2.0) during music playback mode. Of course given that lights are essential, especially in rooms without natural light or at night, we’re not sure if this is a fair comparison, but it could still be worth noting all the same.
