when Voice command is on, did you try to disable "wake on voice" (WoV)?
if wake on voice if on, the camera "listen" for about 8 hours, so some drain ios to be expected, as the processor, mic, etc. are powered.
maybe this WoV makes the difference, not Voice command itself.
when home/office I usually disable WoV just because "recognise" commands from TV, from discussions...and sometimes starts recording, or just power on, etc.

Robert, I tested it, it works. With "Voice control on" battery drains at the rate 2-3% /Hr. With voice control off
(after turning the camera on/off several times, battery drained 1% after 30 Hrs., Simply "camera listens" even when off

GoPro does make one here’s the link. https://shop.gopro.com/accessories-2/portable-power-pack/AZPBC-002.html. It doesn’t have the charging capacity of the other one mentioned though. GoPro accessories are price controlled so it doesn’t matter where you purchase it from.
