A few days ago I bit the bullet and purchased a 128g samsung pro+ as prescribed by the GoPro website in my H5B.
Surprisingly, the battery drain issue was over. I left GPS and WiFi on in my H5B overnight at 75% battery life. After 24 hours I turned it back on and it's still at 75% battery life.
It's still warm to operate but not surprisingly hot compared to my previous card Strontium Nitro.

Please read through all of these post. Most people were able to resolve this issue with a new (Not Sandisk) SD card and a manual update. Cards that seen to work best are Lexar 1000X and Samsung Pro.
I'm not sure what posts you are referring to, but most folks are fixing this problem by replacing the camera. So far only one person claims a repair by replacing the card, and it's not a Silver 4. If this problem is present even when no card is installed, it is unlikely that the problem with the Silver 4 is the cards.

I have the sami issue with GoPro 4 Silver, battery draining overnight.
First i thought that the battery is not good and changed it to another original one.
Then i tried:
1. Formatting the card - no improvement
2. Upgrading the firmware - no improvement
3. Leaving the camera without SD card - no improvment.
What to check more?

You can try a hard reset, I think it's the same as Hero3.
Fully charge your camera
Take out the SD card and battery.
Press and hold the front mode button for 30 seconds - 1 minute
Hold the shutter button down for 30 seconds
While still holding the shutter replace only the battery and power on
When the camera finishes powering on release the shutter and power off
Format your SD card in your computer (FAT for 32GB or less, exFAT if bigger)
Download the MANUAL update https://gopro.com/update/hero4
Put the Update (not Update.zip) folder on the SD card and the Eject (right click>Eject on PC)
Put the SD card in your camera
Turn the camera on
Hopefully this helps,
