USB speed:
I tried USB speed with CHIP computer and old flash disk Kingston DataTravelerMini 1GB. When I used modern Kingston DataTraveler R3.0 G2 16GB, the CHIP computer turned off. It could be caused weak power supply (I used USB power supply for tablet) or current fuse.
USB speed was also tested with Lenovo G550.

10MiB file.


CHIP computer copied one big file (185MB) and a lot of hundreds small files (27MB, over 2000 files) with rsync.

WiFi speed connection:
I used very popular http://www.speedtest.net/.
Measurement was carried out Lenovo G550 with WiFi 802.11b/g (during normal working). I chose the same servers like speedtest script in CHIP computer.




After that I tried mobile phone with WiFi 802.11 b/g/n


Script speedtest in CHIP computer.
Running:
wget -O speedtest-cli https://raw.github.com/sivel/speedtest-cli/master/speedtest_cli.py
chmod +x speedtest-cli
./speedtest-cli




Current consumption:
I used calibrated multimeter Keysight U1272A.
CHIP computer was powered through battery input 3.7V.
Maximal current consumption:
during BOOT: 0.7949 A
in idle boot (after BOOT): 0.25 A

Avarage current consumption:
during BOOT: 0.38 A
after BOOT: 0.24 A

Log of BOOT:
