Battery drain

I’ve had my altimeter anywhere from 50-70% battery left and made sure that it was shut off then left it for the week. When I go to get things ready for the next weekend the battery is completely drained. Any help?

Just gotta charge it the night before every jump! That thing is a mini computer, does so much that I’m not surprised or even remotely upset when it happens to me. Do you shut it off completely as soon as you’re done jumping for the day? I notice the battery drains faster if the wifi connection is bad and it has to keep cycling for it while on.

@Stephski nailed it, also if the device is kept somewhere with bad or no GPS connectivity even when powered off will drain the battery. There are heaps of ways we can improve on this in future firmware updates so expect to see some positive changes in the coming months :slight_smile:
