    I took a look at the Custom Regulator Page and noticed that it says the wii draws about 31W, but by adding up the power draw on the different voltage rails I only get about 5.8W
    (3.3V*0.66A)+(1.15V*1.8A)+(1V*1.53A)=5.778W

    Do the rest of of the components, that get removed really draw more than 25W, or did I make some giant mistake in my calculations?

    I believe, Since you can run the wii Just on 5V, 2.4A.(Better to run on 3A just because) that it can runs on 12W (15W on 3A)

    That number is made up: "Let's say for example that a Wii draws up to 2.6A on it's 12v line".
