    Does anyone know the max wattage pulled by the current Airport Extreme? I'm trying to figure out the best UPS for my (future) home setup.

    Thanks!

    Ha...so I'm guessing nobody else knows either.

    According to the Apple spec page, it's 1.8A @ 12Vdc. That'd be 21.6W, plus some overhead for the power supply itself.

    It should be printed on the supply brick, though.

    edit: I looked on the brick, and it says 0.5A 100-120VAC. That puts it at more like 50W max, but I suspect the actual to be quite a bit less, depending on any USB bus powered devices connected. The ratings are maximums.
