That sounds more like it.  I've gotten too used to roasting 250g in my
HotTop to even think about going back to smaller amounts.

I routinely roast 225 grams (1/2 pound green) without exceeding 860 watts.
My unit lists 1050 watts as the maximum on the nameplate.

In all fairness I do live in Florida and am mostly roasting in 60 to
80 F ambient, however others have insulated the drum with good success
allowing lower power settings in colder climates. I ordered the insulating
material back when I got my Quest but have not yet had the need to install
