How much power does the GBZ draw? Gonna wire a disconnect on my batteries so I need to get the proper wire and connectors.

Just to give you an idea on how much power a typical GBZ draws from a 5v source:
- pi zero w consumes around 180mA with bluetooth and wifi on.
- Gearbest screen consumes around 300mA.
