High power consumption for BG96

I’m currently using a PCIe Mini Version of the BG96. At Idle, it consumes about 45mA, which is far higher than the advertised power consumption as specified in the documentation. My test setup connects UART to the module together with the 3.3V power and ground.

May I know how do I test the power consumption without the use of the EVB? This is the setup that will be used for my prototype.

You can power the BG96, then put it into a low-power mode, and check that the VBAT pin is consuming current.
