MK3S+ power supply budget (taking ~17W from it)

MK3S+ has 24V/10A power supply, so 240W.

Did anyone measure how much current is actually used in this printer?

On AC side it takes 120-150W in PLA printing but I don't know "max" conditions (for other materials, temperatures etc).


I would like to take ~12W for LED strips and ~5W for raspberry pi (with converter) from it and I wonder if it won't be too much for PSU?

(or if there are any other problems with such change)

I've heard of people running lights, Pi, enclosure fans off of it with no issues.  Things like the MMU2S also takes a bit of a load.
