Normal Current draw from battery
Hi. I was given an iPod touch 5 logic board, and it was supposed to be working, but I am hesitant to buy parts if they may end up being wasted. I took off the shields and looked at the board and it looks good.
To test it, I hooked up 3.8v to the battery terminals, left for negative right for positive and measured the amps that were being consumed. I know this is correct because the left pad is directly connected to ground(<1ohm)
Unlike every other device that the current draw fluctuates, the iPod stayed at .3 amps all the time and didn't heat up at all. I did not hook up any screen, dock, or camera, only logicboard. Can anyone tell me if these measurements are normal or is something wrong with the ipod?
Is this a good question?
