Why does my battery charge level decrease when not in use?

You many notice that the battery charge level can drop by up to 5% in the first 24hrs after a full charge when it is not in use. This is completely normal for lithium ion batteries.

The reason for the discharge is mostly down to the battery management system (BMS) – it uses a small amount of power monitoring temperature, balancing cells and various other things.

The battery will go into hibernation after about 3 days if not used, which will drop the rate of discharge. In hibernation mode the battery can last about 6 months but we recommend topping up the battery every two months.

To bring your battery out of hibernation mode, simply press and hold the power button on the battery itself until the battery lights come on.
