Ruling out mis-measurment for now, apart from GPS abnd bluetooth do you
know of some chip that could draw so much current ?
And, is there an easy, low-level command I could run to check the current
state of GPS/GSM/Bluetooth, etc ? Like cating a /sys file ? Because
according to my H:1 setting programm everything is off, but I would like
to check.

Having the fixed FR running out of battery (without notice) after only 2
days is really annoying.

Please community help or I buy an iPhone ! :-)
