Current approaches for tuning the energy conservation do not take into consideration the storage requirements of each device, the traffic and channel data rate as well as parameters concerning the caching activity for packet forwarding. In this work, an evaluation scheme is proposed based on each node's self-scheduling energy management. This scheme is associating crucial metrics of an ad-hoc wireless host with the remaining capacity units of each device, communicating via asymmetrical wireless links. Promiscuous caching is used in the ad-hoc based connectivity scenario where the-so called- promiscuous caching threshold parameter is introduced in order to bound the associated mobility with storage/capacity and traffic characteristics and figure out a suitable pattern for optimal energy conservation. Through experimental simulation, the proposed energy management scheme is thoroughly evaluated in order to meet the parameters' values where the optimal energy conservation is achieved.
