turning everything off does not fix the issue twice now I have also struch this only to go to power up the camera after a day to find it totally flat this is a serious issue that needs resolving I normally use it twice a day but on those two ocasions I did not use it for the whole day needs resolving promptly and as a precaution I usually remove all files from the sd card but this does not seem to help either
there are enough posts about this issue to warrent a serious look by the gopro technical team

The day of yesterday was the maximum, crossing on a motorcycle, I put the battery 100% charged and active quickcapture, at the end of 1 hour I was exhausted, I had only captured 2 videos of 1 minute, I put another battery also original gopro and after 1 the same thing happens, I never had this, always using active quickcapture and I use all day without problems, I hope that soon solve the soft problem.

Further to my last post 2 days still read 100% each day however the third day we were at 97% this isn't bad but if it were to cintinue we would see a considerable loss after a week comparison th my panasonic lumix genuine batteries in my G85 I still see full reading after 4 weeks but as I said one of the gopro batteries seems to self discharge faster than the other whilst in use I have no issues with recording time not that I have run the recording longer than 30-45 minutes I haven't suffered any more total battery drains whilst turned off since the last 2 I mentioned that were totally random after shutting down the camera I suspect this issue may be hard for the team to diagnose since it seems to be random and once we power off the camera and the screen goes blank we cant see what is happening internally and there is no indication of leds blinking or anything an uncased bare camera with power monitoring etc will tell eventually
