Isn't this the "max warm up power" in the "X71 Design Absolute Maximum Rating"
table in the designer's refernence manual? Or am I missing something?
It states that the X72 uses 17W max 10W for 25°C ambient. Which sounds
about as much as I expect for an vapor cell standard. Though 3A on 5V
(or 2A @25°C) is a bit tough.
