3D Stereo - does it use more battery?





HalfBloodPrince
I was doing some late spring cleaning ^_^ and came across a sick set of Logitech speakers. You know, the ones where you pop your iPod into the dock in the middle. My dad got them for me like two years ago and I can't think of why I never opened them Shocked Anyway, there's this button on it for 3D Stereo which basically gives an impressive (for the size of the speakers, very impressive) impression of surround sound. I'm sure this must use up more battery than regular mode but the music really does sound fantastic with it enabled. Just wanted to make sure if this eats up battery faster or not.

a)If the overall volume output increases, then yes it uses more battery power.
b)If it is just a technical trick requiring a little modification of the data in the speakers, then it probably uses power, but a tiny, insignificant amount.

In case of 'A', you could compensate by lowering the volume.
In case of 'B', there's no problem, and you won't notice the difference.

In either case, you can find out how it affects battery life experimentally;
Fully charge it, then let it play continuously in non-3d mode. Make a note of how long it lasts before dying.
Repeat in 3d mode, and see what the difference is.

My guess is that it does affect the battery life somewhat, but not by a significant amount.
