Camera still drain battery on standby even after update, the drain rate is average of 10 % every 20 minutes.
I had everything off, GPS off, voice command off, all Leds off, beep off, wireless off, quick capture off, No SD card.
So is it a design fault?
I didvalotbof online search and noticed thay alot of people are complaining about this fault, so gopto should refund for everyone or Fix their product.

GoPro cameras do use battery when in standby. Make sure LCD timeout is at 1 min and if you don't need to use the camera, turn it off. This is one of the main reasons for Quick Capture, so you don't need to leave the camera in standby.

this is a full in the design GoPro should admit this and try to rectify their stuff up. About the quick capture, it's an added feature and you can have it on or you can turn it off, this should have nothing to do with draining battery, so you are trying to justify the fault by saying this is the reason for the quick capture, what about if I don't want to use that quick capture, what about if I leave the camera in my bag in a hot day is it gonna blow up? is it gonna light up on fire? so I think this product should be looked at and fixed. I only have this junk for two weeks and I hate it, GoPro has tricked a lot of people by advertising their faulty product, my brother also had black 6 which is sold and got rid off after few months off using from issues.

PRO TIP: Since it only turns the camera on when it’s recording, QuikCapture is a great way to maximize battery life.
wifi is on goes to bluetooth from older cameras wifi turns down after about 8 minutes to bluetooth and bluetooth wakes up to turn wifi on why the drain that is WHY! standby use a powerbank if its important. never thought of that? now you can keep the camera
@danielr15 he wants the camera notto drain on standby he needs to turn his wake up off and then see a 1% drain every 8 hours if.

Without the original packaging the Shop will not accept it and GoPro did a great job by making the the customer damaging the box to get the thing out. So how can I return it.?
Fishy, I'm not say i want 1 percent in 8 hours, be smarter mate, there is no camera drains battery like this one, even the cheapest One without going into details, I bought a Top of the Line camera, well i thought that, but not really with every feature Off and without touching the bloody thing gos flat in about 2 hours and getting Hot Something is not right here mate, well if you like this junk then its up to but I'm not the only one complaining about this, go check online and see how many people are complaining about this so its not something normal mate.
