I connect a 13 watt CFL light to the nexus power station. In the app it shows me that the power consumption for that outlet is 21 Watts.
My question is , how is this calculated? Is it factoring in other things or is this supposed to be just the actual power used by the load?
I have a WiFi plug that measures the power as well and it is spot on at 13 watts for this light bulb. Hence I’m trying to figure out and understand what I am seeing on the nexus power station.

Thanks for the update, William.

I just recently picked up the Power Station but haven't had a chance to do anything apart from get it connected to Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

I don't know much about power consumption and so forth, so I'm looking forward to seeing how the estimated time compares with actual time.
