I haven’t had a chance to make a table of all of the power usage data from my tests, but here are some of the more important measurements:

Mayfly current when board is powered and idle: 6.5 mA
Mayfly current when MCU put to sleep: 0.27 mA (or 270 uA)
Current when asleep with microSD card in the socket: 0.43 mA (or 430 uA)
