Deep power saving mode

Recommended Posts

In late 2021 Starlink engineers said they were working hard on a deep power saving mode to fix the 100 watt 24/7 power usage problem.

1) Have there been any updates?

2) Timeline?

If it won't be soon I will need to install 3 or 4 way switches to be able to turn power off/on from both upstairs and downstairs.

3) Are there any known problems with removing power from a Starlink system when not in use?

4) When power is switched back on does Starlink start back up automatically?

I live off grid using solar. Please, none of the usual remarks from cheap grid power users that 100 watts 24/7 is not very much.

Turning it off at a set time won't damage the unit however i wouldnt expect the router to last as long due to " chip creep " - its not as common these days but a full time 24/7 router lasts longer staying on than being turned back on every day.

- Plenty of IoT relays you could use to cut power to the units PSU/PoE depending on how your doing it.

AFAIK - There isnt any power saving features in the pipeline for the router endpoint.
