The power consumption of ODNO part is kind of misleading. It consumes nowhere near 4x electricity when doing 4x ODNO, just over 2x, see actual measurements in the ODNO thread in FAQ. It would be nice if we can do more measurements with different ballast configurations, to provide more data points. I am getting a kill-a-watt myself off ebay right now.
