These are things of beauty(!)-----I can't wait to get my hands on them. 
Very well done!

The bigger issue seems to be the CP2102 USB UART chip - that is using about 5mA even in deep sleep. The SUSPEND mode doesn't seem to happen even when USB is disconnected. So, we may have to re-wire it to be powered by USB (rather than our 3.3V supply) - which will mean it powers off completely when disconnected from USB. Still testing that. The BTS chip also seems to be using more than we intend. We're talking about 20mA here (vs 80mA for OVMS v2), but I reckon we can get it down to below 1mA. Anyway, I don't want to confirm the hardware layout until we are 100% certain we can power down correctly.
