Aura Frames are WiFi cloud connected frames, which means they require a constant WiFi connection to the internet and an electrical power connection to display the photos. The exact data and electricity consumption depends on the individual frame usage.
Photo / video uploads and occasional firmware updates may require multiple gigabytes of data per month so we strongly recommend you use WiFi rather than a mobile data plan or hotspot.
The frame's power consumption is 10Wh while it is awake, and 2Wh while it is asleep. In order to reduce energy consumption, Aura will automatically go to sleep (= low-power mode with the display being turned off) when you turn off the lights or when you have set a schedule for your frame.
