Graphing Current Drain of the Sparkfun BadgerHack

Sparkfun had a nice booth at SXSW in Austin that let you build and walk away with their BadgerHack project.  Very generous and Thanks!  Also at the booth were some of the 'moviestars' often seen on their YouTube channel.  It was great to meet a few of them.

I was curious about the current drain of all those LEDs dancing on the display.  I had access to a Keithley 2461 SourceMeter/SMU which makes it easy to run the experiment.  The video below tells it all. 

Thanks again, Sparkfun!
