    Hello,

    A standard NE555 has a supply current of max. 6 mA @ 5 Volts WITHOUT LOAD.

    [​IMG]

    The NE555 can supply max 200 mA to a load, this will be added to the normal working current.

    Greetings,
    Bertus

    What I'm talking about is this:

    Does Current Supply not mean the current going into the chip to power it? As in the current going in pin 8? Not the current it can source out the output

    Hello,

    The supply current is the current needed to let the NE555 work.
    It supplies the current to the comparators and the flip-flop inside the NE555.

    See also this link for more info on the NE555:
