Here it is ticking away connected to a bench power supply:

Notice the power supply meters? Don’t worry – I’m using a larger DC-DC Buck/Boost converter to step it down for the 15V rail – the converter later failed while I was adjusting the output voltage however.

Regardless – 21.1V @ 1.08A = 22.8W! This thing is a power hog, especially during initial warm-up (something like 5 min).
