[chirp_users] Copying data from one rig to another (of the same model)

The issue would be the firmware changes if any. But if you bought
a dozen radios for your business all with the same firmware and you 
have the cable, it would be quicker just to clone the 11 others from
the first radio you set up manually or via software.

There is a way to clone but it requires a cloning cable, not a programming cable. Or does comes with its own set of issues. 
This is covered at

Hope this helps ...
