If I lift the pack (-) and run 28v from cell 1 to cell 8, I now measure right around 500uA. This is not too bad.

I suspect it wouldn't help that much.
I also tried out the sleep mode. It is essentially useless. 20ma on, 13ma sleep. I'm not sure exactly what is sleeping, but I do see the backlight turn off and the display goes blank. Looks like everything else is still powered up.

Interesting the Atmel web site states this product is not recommeded for new designs (mature).
From the datasheet, I can see how to hook up my SPI.
