Power Consumption - Iphone running timelapse

Post by JS » Wed Jul 07, 2010 10:43 am

I am interested in the power consumption of an Iphone running the Timelapse app.

Apple rates the Iphone 4 in standby at 300 hours from a full 1400mAh battery. Can you give battery life while running Timelapse with:
1. 1 second snapshots
2. 5 second snapshots
3. 10 second snapshots
4. 30 second snapshots

Can you give spec. with and without flash?

Interested in how long of an activity I can capture and what frame rate I'll need to use.

Hi Jim,

I have not put my phone and its battery through such rigorous testing so I don't have the answers for you.
Keep in mind that the current version of TimeLapse does not support controlling the flash or using the front facing camera on iPhone 4. However, there is an update pending Apple's approval that will add support for this.
