It depends on whether the 78x15/79x15 regulators are:  100ma, 500ma, 1000ma
or 1500ma types.  This most of the time is defined by the letter in between
the 4 digits.  Feed me the part #s and I can probably give you a good idea.

As an alternate thought on that, until last night I was powering 50 modules
in my machine, and 14 modules in Mark Pulver's machine, from a 1500ma power
supply. (1.5amps on  + and -)
I have recorded ma values from quite a few modules though.  If you need the
data I can post it.
