Battery drain still present

Are you still experiencing battery drain with 8.06 update? My device still drops 3-5% a day when turned off or when in "sleep".

  • Not when turned off. In sleep there still seems to be an issue with battery drain.

  • With device powered on, hold power button until device shows the screen with power down icon, then release power button while still on that screen. That should turn off your device and fix the battery drain at least until the next ride.

  • Well I was wrong. It also drains the battery when turned off. Totally unpredictable unfortunately.

  • I've had edge devices since the 705 in 2008. I've have never switched the various devices off - just let them atuo-sleep. My Explore 2 (8.06) loses about 10% a day. Out on a ride, it uses about 5% an hour (I use north up, not track up, so my screen possibly doesn't get refreshed as often). I'm ok with this, but just a little puzzled as my 1000 could go weeks in sleep without seeming to lose any power. I say "seeming" because I can't be sure that the power meter is reliable. I always leave my Explore on Indoor, hoping it won't waste battery trying to search for a gps signal. I haven't tried switching off.
