I measured energy usage by anova v2 (900 w) and I see a Max consumption of about 450 watts when heating up water (before it reaches final temperature).
I measured consumption using two methods:
- TPLink hs110 has energy monitoring and I can see real time power usage
- Measuring time required to heat up 10lt of water by 5 degrees using 450w and 900w. (See http://processheatingservices.com/water-heating-time-calculator/) Time required matches my measurements when heating element provides 450w.
I’m on 120V.
Is my unit defective or is other people seeing the same thing?
