Here2 current draw


What is the current draw of the Here2 module? (Or any Here GPS module). I’ve done some extensive searching but I’ve been unable to find any information regarding the power requirements.

The reason I ask is because I need to decide on a current rating for a fuse that I will be installing on the Here2 power rail, so ballpark numbers are fine.

Hello, I know this post is just over a year but I am also keen to know the power consumption of the Here2 and the Here 3. My reasons are a bit different in that I am trying to work out my total power budget as I have 2x GPS (Ardusimple roving base setup) and a lidar (SF11/c) attached to my Pixhawk Cube black. I also have the Here2 GPS acting as an external compass and LED. I know that the cube has a 1A budget for all peripherals less those on Telem 1 and I want to make sure I have some headroom and am not over drawing from the cube’s supply. Thank you for any help you can give.

Here+, Here2, and Here3 draw around 150mA or 0.8W with no more than 1W.
