SanDisk extreme has 4 times the power consumption of a typical ssd... 0.6w vs 0.15w with Samsung 830/840. SanDisk ultra plus is 0.12w
Also, Extreme is 9.5mm, so it might not fit some laptop drive compartments.
The power difference doesn't seem that significant to me. My laptop is using about 30 watts from the plug. A .45 watt difference is 1.5% of the total power draw. If I get 10 hours on a battery, we're talking about an extra 10 minutes of battery life.
