I just got my first GoPro Hero 7 yesterday night charged to 100% and in the morning it was 0%. I was about to call the seller saying the camera battery is faulty and I want to return it. When I saw this post I realised that I am not the only victim ☺️
I believe I have the solution (for me at least), but i haven't yet narrowed down the cause.
Every time it has been on charge, or plugged it into any USB source, I assume it is about to bug out. So I remove the battery completely for a couple of minutes to completely kill it and put it back in.
So far my tests are quite unscientificic using anecdotal evidence, I haven't used the gopro much in the last couple of months to difinitively prove it, but I believe it has solved the problem.
as others have previously mentioned, as a precaution I also have wifi and bluetooth and screen rotation disabled too.

So for the GoPro employees that post their nonsense blame-the-sd-card crap — shame on you. You are liars.

The battery drain is still not solved.
Both my hero 7 cameras have it. Both on V1.8.
Just got a new one under warranty because one was not charging anymore.
It looks new but has the name sophies gopro and just drained it's batterys 2 times in one day.
Just did updates again on both camera's to see what happens.
My hero 6 does not have this issue ( it's my best gopro )
It is really disappointing that this issue is still there.
