Both the forum and the product page list that it requires 3-5V to operate, but they do NOT specify how much current is required.

I'm trying to build a circuit around this device, but I need to know it's power requirements before I can proceed.

What is the amount of current in mA required to power this device?

If you provide a stable DC power supply, it will not produce more than the rated current, so please rest assured to use.

What is the "rated current"? That is my question.

I cannot find the answer anywhere.

These boards generally do not determine the size of the current, generally not too large, and the boards that require a larger current will be specially explained.
