Introduction: How to Reduce the Power Consumption of the NRF24L01+ Transceiver

In this instructable we take a look at the power needs or power profile of the nRF24L01+ Transceiver. We discuss how much power it draws in each mode and how to reduce or optimize its power consumption for battery powered projects or designs. Finally we pair the nRF24L01 with an Arduino utilizing sleep mode and look at their combined power profile. To access the Arduino code go to
