Maximum total radiated power for different configurations.

Symmetric Asymmetric
Same parallel 4.9 L0 8.0 L0, down
Same anti-parallel 5.0 L0 10 L0, down
Opposed parallel 1.9 L0 4.4L0, down

Notes. “Same” (resp. “Opposed”) denotes aligned (resp. anti-aligned) magnetic moments, whereas “parallel” (resp. “anti-parallel”) denotes aligned (resp. anti-aligned) spins. L0 is the spindown power of an isolated pulsar. L0, down is the spindown of the bottom (recycled) pulsar if it were isolated. In all our asymmetric runs, the bottom pulsar was assigned the same magnetic strength and rotation period as in the symmetric simulations.
