2.5" drive power consumption

Recommended Posts

I have a number of 2.5" laptop drives at the moment, in various laptops and external hard drive caddies. Both uses are power sensitive, in the laptops with respect to keeping up battery life, and with the caddies ensuring that they work well without the need for an extra power source.

Is there a lot of difference between the power consumption of different sizes, different models and different rotational speeds? Are certain models considered better for use in caddies and even in laptops when it comes to keeping up battery life?

On a slight side note, are there any recommended good practices for ensuring good battery life in your laptop?
