How much power does Bluetooth use?

    I'm thinking of getting the following add-on by Ulanzi to use a smartphone as a camera:


    I've never used Bluetooth on my Android phone: How much power can I expect it to use if I let it on a whole day?

    Do you think I'll need to pair the phone + add-on every time I turn on the screen to take a picture, or will pairing remain active?

    Thank you.

    Unforgiven ...eschew obfuscation...

    I have bluetooth on on my phone all the time. All day, every day. 99% of the time it is connected to something, whether its a BT speaker on my desk, my truck stereo, or various things in my house. I've never had any weird or excessive battery drain from it.

    That will probably depend on the device. My phone connects to my truck when I start it with no interaction on my part. Most times I have to manually reconnect the speaker. So it will depend on the device.
