why that?

All GTA04A4 boards are initialized and tested for 3 MBit and only
a handful of GTA04A3 boards (like yours) have 115200. I think
it is better to ask those to upgrade the default baudrate.

BTW: if anyone runs the hw-validation kernel/hw-test script this upgrade
is done automatically if needed.

That is already quite good. 1200 mAh / 25 mA = 48 hours

A preliminary version for a universal app shop is here:

There is also an experimental JSON download:

Yes, your speed is impressive!
