Is your Nintendo Switch a power guzzler?

Thanks to Danish company E.On, you can now compare the power consumption of this generation’s consoles with one another. The following figures (in rising order) are based on an active operation of 2 hours per day:

Xbox One X: ~ 36€
PS4 Pro: ~ 34€
Xbox One: ~ 25€
PS4 Basic Model: ~ 18€
Nintendo Switch: ~ 3€
SNES Classic Mini: ~ 1€

For those who are curious, here are the same statistics for older consoles:

PS3: ~ 40€
PS2: ~ 5€
PS1: ~ 2€
Xbox 360: ~ 36€
Xbox: ~ 14€
Wii U: ~ 7€
Wii: ~ 3€

Looks like the Switch is really keeping things pretty efficient overall, just as Nintendo designed it to!
