Has anyone who has overclocked his slug measured any change in power
consumption? I've done some measurements, not overclocked and not
very accurately, and it seems to use 7W (including the power supply
itself). The supply will deliver only 10W (5V * 2A), so if
overclocking increases power consumptions significally, we're quickly
close to what the power supply will manage.

Jason did with a snipper of some sort.
The detailed tips from Jeff and Rob are inspiring though and much
appreciated. I'm going to open up my slug, take a look at the task,
and see if I'm up for a little desoldering.
