Recently, I'm facing some problems with gopro. When I turn it off and even turned off the wireless connection before that at 80-90%. Next day its almost like 3-7%.
Firmware is latest. Audio control is off.

We suggest doing a manual software update first. https://gopro.com/help/articles/how_to/Software-Update-Instructions-for-HERO5-Cameras
We also recommend charging the camera with a USB wall charger that outputs 5V and 2A for HERO5 cameras.
If the issue persists we'd like to look into this further and identify if the issue is with the battery or possibly with the camera itself.
Please reach out to us via phone or chat. https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs

I have tried that option too.
I will list the solutions tried which was suggested by others.
- Change the memory cards. Recently I bought 128GB Samsung EVO plus. I thought it might be the issue and changed to old memorycard and still facing the same issue.
- Turned off - WIFI, Audio, GPS - still issue exist
- Change battery with my friend GoPro. My battery works fine in his GoPro it reduced from 96 to 95% over the night. But, though I used his battery it reduced 100% - 76% overthe night.
- Factory reset it and tried everything above. Same result.(After factory reset update version was in latest. its said 2.60, even without updating. Previously when I made factory reset for testing. GoPro version went to old version and I reUpdated. This time it was different)
I will try to update the GoPro manually and update you.
With this info can you provide any further steps. Its proved that there is no problem with my battery. Its with my GoPro. I'm trying to record a video with 100% charge with 2 GoPro same settings and same resolution, to check there is any impact on recording time or just this problem occurs when its turned off.
