Batteries loosing charge when not in go pro

All 3 batteries that i have tend to lose charge when not in a go pro.

 

Ober 3 days, without putting the battery inside my go pro, it lost 11% of the charge. Is that normal?

Re: Batteries loosing charge when not in go pro

Hi @barbarap18

 

Make sure that your camera is up to date and that you are using a recommended SD card.

Also, please note that it's natural for lithium batteries to discharge when not used. 

 

 

Thanks!

HI @aragon1006 ,

 

Thank you for replying here!

 

Batteries loose charge while stored not inside of the camera.

 

I have used lithium batters on drones before and i understand they can loose charge when not used, just suprised here how quickly these go pro batteries drain themselves.
