Hero 3+ Battery Drains when Camera turned off

My battery drains when the camera is off. WiFi is turned off, firmware updated, no sd card in camera. Really frustrating. If there is no solution, then GoPro needs to fix this issue somehow. This is definitely a glitch.

@hardyriver25374 - How quickly is the battery draining? Also, if you have another battery, can you see if that battery drains as quickly. It's possible that the issue is with your specific battery. All batteries will lose their ability to hold a charge after time and use, and since the HERO3+ is about 5 years old now, it's possible that your battery may just need to be replaced.
