How On Earth Do You Turn It Off?

Hi All, 

 

I am unable to find an answer to this question, I know when it's not being used it goes into standby however everytime I leave it for a couple of weeks it goes form 100% to 0% battery life.

 

When fully charged and being used it works fine and battery lasts a while, so I know it isnt an issue with the battery itself.

 

Also have made a new video with it recently and it lasted just fine:

 

 

 

Kind Regards,

 

Frank

@fasttree08381 - Battery drain when the Session cameras is not in use is likely due to other features like wifi being left on. When you're done using the camera for the day, be sure to turn off the wifi connection in the camera's settings. That should minimize battery drain.
