Not all flash/modem cards drain batteries

Not all flash/modem cards drain batteries

I am writing this message in response to Mark Scardina's "PC Card Tip" from the Volume 5, Bonus Issue 2, Page 33. In his description of PC flash/modem cards, he states that it is "usually advisable to remove flash/ modem cards when not in use" because of high power consumption.

I'd like to clear up any possible confusion that may result from this statement. Our Apex Data flash/ modem card is engineered to be different than the card named in Mr. Scardina's tip. The Apex Data card is 24mA in USE and less than 2mA when in SLEEP mode. It is NOT necessary to remove the APEX card when not in use.
