That issue with battery consumption is indeed problematic.

I'm not an expert on network stuff, but I wonder if there is a way to
make a distinguished "packet" that tells GNUnet (or GNU Ring) the peer's
power level, power supply health (if applicable), and based on this,
transfer the "hard work" to more capable peers (this is based on [1]).
