Battery consumption is an important but not very widely studied aspect of peer-to-peer applications. This paper describes a series of experiments which obtained detailed measurements of BitTorrent energy consumption on handheld devices. The measurements that were carried out with SymTorrent client on three different models of Nokia S60 mobile phones indicate that peer-to-peer content sharing on handhelds is practical from the energy consumption point of view. The results also show that acting as a true peer and uploading content for other users does not cause much extra energy consumption during active downloading.
