Re: Hero8 normal standby life ?

So a quick update, previous morning was 100% overnight after a full charge.

 

This morning 98% , and it's taken about a 20 minute charge to go back up yo 100% so it's obviously draining intermittently.

 

Although everything off Wi-Fi eff, i did have quick capture on so will try again without see if it makes any difference.

 

It's not a massive problem, but it's not ideal if you leave the camera for a few  days and you've drained the battery partially.

Re: Hero8 normal standby life ?

Thank you fishycomics for having a look at your battery state.

 

Standby current really should be in micro Amps and hence last days to weeks at near 100% charge , but I'm not sure what mode is triggering intermittent higher current draw when off.

 

I did come across a thread with the hero7 that had this problem but more severe discharge when off, so it's not a new issue.
