Hero 8 battery

[ New ]
My new hero8 black drains the battery even when not in use. Drained from 100% to 0% overnight with no use. Any ideas as this surely can't be correct

If you have the Connections turned on, please be sure to turn that off when you're done using the camera. There are some situations where the camera may continue to power on during the night as other apps ping looking for bluetooth connections. That should take care of the overnight drain issues. If it doesn't, you can take the extra step of removing the battery when the camera is not in use too.
