Wireless mobile adhoc networks require certain mechanisms of tracking and managing power consumption as they are using nonrenewable energy sources i.e. the battery sources. A number of cost aware and power aware algorithms have been proposed so far to cope up with the problem of proper utilization of battery lifetime. This paper deals with creating a constraint less power and cost aware routing algorithm for MANETs. The thresholds and cutoffs involved in the previous algorithms are not kept into the consideration .This paper employs the cost aware mechanism when multiple numbers of nodes are capable of receiving and transmitting the packets. This is done to obtain an optimal path for communication. The model proposed by the paper deals with determining the sufficiency of power available in each node to receive and transmit the packet and comparing the available nodes' distances to reduce the cost of the total transmission. The powercost algorithm tends to identify the nodes with certain energy, such that they can receive and transmit a packet of certain size which would be acknowledged by the listening packet, which creates the flexibility of optimal usability of the power of available nodes.
