If you would like to know how much electricity does your gaming console use, first you need to know it’s power consumption.
The power consumption of a gaming console varies depending on how it is being used: gaming, streaming, stand-by… so the best way to learn the exact power consumption is to search for it.
As shown below, we have searched for the power consumption of a PS4 and have got the details from the manufacturer’s website.
