Hero5 battery drains while off

It's not the first post of its kind i'm reading about this issue but I couldn't find a solution. My (new and original) gopro hero 5 black battery drains while camera is off by a 10% daily.

 

settings:

- wifi connection off

- gps off

- quick capture off

- voice control off

 

my sd card is from my previous gopro hero 3, it's not on the "suggested" list but i've read that even with an "approved" sd card, the problem didn't get solved. 

 

any suggestions apart from removing the battery from the device when not in use?

should i return it and get a new gopro?

Re: Hero5 battery drains while off

returning it and getting a new one wont change a thing. its just the way it is with the hero 5
