I got my 3th replacement for my Hero 7 White, still the same problem about battery drain when camera is off and everything turned off. Switching or removing sd-card doesn't solve the problem. Last night I made last test and battery went from 100% to 70% in just 6 hours when everything were off! I will probably return also this camera to get the new Osmo. It's a shame that GoPro is not able to fix the problem since I'm sure that it's a software issue and not an hardware issue.
Hero white get a Osmo that is a good move iif asked but if a hero 7 black for a osmo well not so good.
My bat drained I was only shooting 2k7 and maybe 10 clips Lol. sucks when that happens Power consuming gopro if asked sucks bat life

Travis. You say H7b battery use is higher (than what for Comparison)
the Chinese battery that came with the camera kit.
what looks to me has a higher discharge rate while the camera is switched off (roughly 2 to 5 % over 8 hours) then the non Chinese battery i bought.
both batteries are genuine gopro, the other battery is made in Vietnam. so they are supplying, with the cameras, defective batteries.

GOPRO. PLEASE STEP UP TO THE PLATE AND FIX THE POWER DRAIN ISSUE WITH CAMERA/S both my H7 Black and Silver. PLEASE REPLACE WHAT I NOW BELIEVE ARE FAULTY BATTERIES. Your surely must now have enough evidence internationally to do something about the camera and batteries. MY CAMERAS and Batteries are BRAND NEW except for these tests and a few test videos to affirm I don't have a lemon. I am in Australia so have no idea how to get some ACTION from you. I'm pretty much done with the brand, because of your inaction.

Hi I had already conducted similar tests,whay you also need to do is charge these same batterys to 100% and leave them out of the camera for 20 days just sitting and check charge level at the 20 days I'll think you will find considerably more than what the prior tests showed as I have stated over and over the camera does not report the correct battery levels anyway next time you turn on and see a level turn it off then on and it may or may not show a different level as this seems random like the drain issue as well
