MAX off -> battery drop

Hello!

 

I have charged the MAX battery to 100% and switched off the camera.

After 3 days i switched on Max again and the battery shows only around 50% battery power.

Voice control and quick start are disabled.

Have anyone also seen this problem?

It's best to not store the battery in the camera.

To store the battery outside is not a solution that is a joke...

Today i get a second battery and i want test its a battery or a camera problem.

Not a joke. It's recommended to not store the battery in the camera and is part of the warranty information. It's a lithium battery. Lithium batteries should discharge to a safe level when not in use.

Yes you are right, but 50% in 2 days is not a discharge to store save the battery.

After one week it is not posssible anymore to power on the camera.

The discharge should stop around 30% to store a lithium battery save and not until 0%.

 

If you want go to a trip, you charge you battery full and you want use the camera in the evening but you lost 15% for nothing?

BT and WIFI are really always on? i have try to connect via wlan when the MAX is off but this is not possible.

But i want test with option "all connections off" in the next few days

No improvement with "all connections off". The battery drop is also 25% in 2 days.

Meanwhile i have contacted the Gopro support and the camera will be replaced.
