The goal here was to capture images intermittently and reduce power consumption.   The following stats are all for a headless, HDMI disabled, RPi Zero W connected via SSH on Wifi. This is using a Purethermal 2 board and a Lepton 3.5 Here are the results:

Using exactly the same setup and a Lepton 2.5, the results are almost exactly the same, except it seems like the peak current is a little less ( ~0.23A) and duration of the higher current for running is also less.
