Standby Power edge cases using power run off ( refrigerator as example )


Recommended Posts

Currently the power run off is implemented on batteries but there's a few possible edge cases where the power run off could be used: the fridge for example could be used to lower its net power consumption - only powering on to cool food down when things are delivered to the fridge or when things are taken out

Energy use example: 6,000 J/c power run off or a more friendly looking number like 30 j/s ( equivalent to 30 Watts ) and 90 Watts when adding something to it. this would use the same kind of trigger for power demand mechanism that the exosuit docks use. This would still make it a 120 Watt unit when being interacted with, but lower the energy use when simply setting idle.

Fridges are a bit weird. They cool the content regardless if they're powered or not but the automation only works if they are powered.

The food cooled by an unpowered fridge also doesn't seem to be preserved from rot. It works to kill slimelung, though.
