I'm really asking, not being sarcastic. Thanks!
can't be sure, i'm just guessing.
I just know that the download mode doesn't use as much power as the full android booting up. In fact trying to boot a dead (0%) battery with pc's usb, lead to boot loop in my case or no boot at all.
But of course you need to be sure to have a 70-80% charged battery. Try mcgyver on one of yours.
if this fails you need to check as well with other SBFs
