Normal Current draw from battery

Hi. I was given an iPod touch 5 logic board, and it was supposed to be working, but I am hesitant to buy parts if they may end up being wasted. I took off the shields and looked at the board and it looks good.

To test it, I hooked up 3.8v to the battery terminals, left for negative right for positive and measured the amps that were being consumed. I know this is correct because the left pad is directly connected to ground(<1ohm)

Unlike every other device that the current draw fluctuates, the iPod stayed at .3 amps all the time and didn't heat up at all. I did not hook up any screen, dock, or camera, only logicboard. Can anyone tell me if these measurements are normal or is something wrong with the ipod?

Is it on or off when draining .3 amps?



IDK, I just hooked up the battery and it started drawing current. I didn't connect the power flex


without anything connected it will most likely draw some minimal amperage to the IC's etc. 300mA sounds about normal.


OK. thanks, I hooked up the power button and pressed it and saw it immediately draw more amps, around what is expected for an ipod/iphone


@oldturkey03 if the ipod seems to draw the correct amount of power, would it be wise to order a dock and screen to test it?
