Electronic Question

I am a bonafide electrotard. I am surprised that I can successfully plug into a wall socket, but then that’s actually a mechanical movement.

I usually walk the dogs at dark thirty, so I use 4 small jogging lights for me and two lighted leashes for the dogs. I want those goofy drivers to see us.

I want to get the most bang for the buck out of batteries, so here’s the question: Which uses more juice, the blinking mode or the constant on?

Thanks

I could very well be wrong, but....

Question was "which uses more juice?"

Post 2 says "constant on".

Post 3 states "Constantly on consumes much less electricity."
Thanks for pointing that out. I read it too fast. Reading 101, sigh


Need more guys to weigh in Please.

LED lights use less juice, and even less when blinking.
Incandescent lights use more juice, and even more when blinking
( due to tungstun filaments being a direct short untill the filament gets hot),

Thank you, I’m sure that they all LED.

There's very little (practically zero) consumption when the light is off in blink mode. Depending on the LED and the driver, it's about 200 mA when on, and about 0.05 mA when off (in the blink mode). Depending on the switch, it may more than zero when it's "off", but it will probably be even lower than the off cycle of blink mode.
