I've just bought a 5 with the fan case, and it's kind of ridiculous that it needs active cooling while under no load. I'm sort of disappointed how much power it draws. The whole point of a pi is supposed to be that it's tiny and uses almost no power. My previous pi3 would be cold while idle and only ever got "warmish" under load and no active cooling.

Thanks for the link. I initially linked directly to the public .mp4 video file on floatplane, but I updated the post to the youtube link once it was published. I'll leave the youtube link in the OP as I think it's easier, although I don't like that they monetised the video. GN didn't monetise theirs.

edit: I didn't notice at first, but having all this shit in the description is also just a bit tactless? Like, read the room guys. I know it's probably just a default under all videos but didn't someone think to omit it for this one?

I'm already with Octopus, but I've just had a smart meter installed, so I'm looking at moving to one of their EV tarrifs. These seem like kind of a no-brainer, but I'm a bit suspicious. It seems sort of too compelling.. what am I missing?

I'm currently paying 29.26p/kWh and 53.96p/day. Both EV tarriffs are 29.56p/kWh, so only 0.3p more, and the standing charge is the same. But, both tarriffs offer cheap overnight power; Go offers 4 hours at 9.5p/kWh, and Intelligent offers 6 hours at 7.5p/kWh (so why would you ever choose Go..?). I guess you'd choose Go if you can't or don't want to link your car's API to Octopus, but I see no other disadvantage).

Is anyone here on either the Go or Intelligent tarriff? Any regrets or non-obvious gotchas to watch out for?
