    Hi, I can't find any info on the standby power consumption.

    I'm also interested in a metal case that has enough space to fit a 2.5 or, preferably, a 3.5 inch SATA-drive. Are there any plans for a bigger metal case or do you rely on 3rd-party manufacturers and the makers themselves to create cases for the bolt?

    There is power consumption information in this KickStater update.

    I guess idle power is somewhat higher than standby power, but it's pretty low. According to this April 11, 2019 KickStater update, Bolts are shipping, so perhaps someone who has received one can provide the standby power information.
    Have you seen the case in this Kickstarter update? It appears to have been designed to accommodate a conventional (non M.2) SSD or HDD.

    Hi, thanks for your reply and the information on the power consumption.

    I have seen the metal case, but I am not sure where the 2.5" drive should go, apart from maybe the free space between the Udoo and the base plate?

    Since that appears to have mounting holes that look like they would be suitable for a 2.5” Device I expect that is exactly where it is expected to go. However until I get my Bolt I am just guessing.
