Can the R610 be powered via POE (the spec sheet doesn't seem to indicate support for this)?

It's working but states some services are not active due to lack of power. Which means need to put on injector. However it's working fine, So what's the advantage of injector on R610.?

Howdy!
 Below are the AP specs when running on AF power.
AP will;
Limit 2.4GHz to 2x3 (2-chain transmit at 21dBm aggregate power, 3-chain receive) Turn off the USB port 
Turns on only 1 Ethernet port

Thanks Andrew.

So for average home, no difference as not using USB or 2nd port. Correct?

In my home, we social distance in our front yard, and in the street in front of our home For me, that extra dBm (power) is essential. You may not need it, and indeed, you may never notice the difference, especially if you're not trying to cut through a ton of interference. With full power, you get 3x3:3 at 27dBm.
This means you lose 6dBm in transmit power on 2.4GHz and reduce the number of concurrent streams by one.
