Default rockbox: best codec/kbps for battery life?

With limited battery I was wondering if anyone knows the best codec for the least power drain.

I'm rather thinking it'll be flac, uncompressed as it is, but maybe not.

In any case I would rather use a compressed codec as otherwise my clip+ is going to fill up rather too quick.

Sometimes things are counterintuitive so maybe flac is the worst?

If you don't want to use all the space that FLAC takes up, I think Ogg Vorbis is your best bet for maximum battery.....check to be sure.
