    I often read the question in this forum, how much does the aod battery consumption is, or the statement: after I turned off AOD I got some hours of more screen in time...

    So I tested it on my own

    1. Without aod
    My device consumed 6% battery over night (538 minutes) and was 93% in deepsleep
    The battery consumption was 0.66% an hour

    2. With AOD activated
    My device consumed 12% battery in (395 minutes) and was 89% in deepsleep
    The Battery consumption was 1.82% an hour
    (I did not touched the phone during this period, like night idle)

    Now you might simply say AOD consume 1.16% battery an hour but you need to calculate it different

    In a 24h time frame my aod is active from 7:00 to 22 = 15 hours
    So it's in normal standby (0,66% an hour) for 9 hours
    In addition I have a screen on time of around 6 hours which reduces the 15h to 9 left for AOD

    So basically battery consumption with aod is
    9x0,66% = 5.94%
    + 9x1.82% = 16.38%
    + screen on time
    = 22.32% when not in use

    Compared to 18x0,66=11.88% when not in use when AOD is off

    So my final result (and yours my be different) is that AOD with my schedule consume around 10% battery charge in 24 hours

    On an average day I use around 12-13% an hour battery when screen is on. Which means enabling AOD is consuming around 50 minutes Screen on time in my case

    Maybe this helps someone

    Thank you very much for your test and calculation. Might try AOD now. Didn't know that battery consumption really is so low for a whole day of use:)
