In this paper, we compare the battery power efficiencies of various pulse-based modulations widely adopted for their low complexity. Taking into account circuit modules and battery imperfectness, we establish simple closed-form analytical formulas which can be used to conveniently determine the relative preference between arbitrary pulse-based modulation pairs in terms of their actual average battery energy consumption.
