Okay, this would explain about 10% of the loss.

I mean the 0.1 Ohm resistor you used to measure the current:
Battery -----/\/\/\----- CON1701
Your "IN" voltage is taken at point B, so it doesn't add a (false)

It's all ballpark figures ;-) I was just looking for a reference for
the typical performance of the sort of DC-DC converters NXP use in
these chips. They all seem to have their peak efficiency of 85% in
the middle of their operating range and drop to 75% at the edges.
