Anybody noticed there is battery drain since V10 whilst the car is garaged? ( I'm sure it drains out of the garage as well)

Wonder if all the Bluetooth/satnav etc stays on?

Definitely changed or the battery is dying.

Andy, went out today in glorious sunshine and battery at 85% after one week parked up, never less than 95% before V10 but I could be wrong........if it didn't indicate % charge I wouldn't be concerned would I ???

I've seen no diff since in battery level since getting v10 a few weeks ago. Are you holding the start/stop button in for a couple of seconds when you shut down? Are you locking the car after shutdown? I do both to make sure that my battery doesn't run down.

LOL, I do neither of those, and my battery ranges from 94-97% since the update, same as pre-vers 10. I don't even bother closing (er, slamming) the door completely when parking in the garage, as the dealer didn't adjust the door as they claimed to have. Car sleeps after a few minutes automatically (as designed).

I wonder what the lifespan of these batteries is? Hopefully quite a while seen as the firm has gone bust supplying them !! Does anyone know if they have been taken over,mine being the oldest battery here,guess i will find out first!!

Andy, your deploying your battery so that probably keeps it going whereas the standing idle batteries die faster. Although Lithium has no memory so maybe I'm talking bo.....ks! As usual

Happy New Year

I think a chinese automaker bought over a big chunk of the company (A123systems).

You might have hit the nail on the head there Robbie, Ric might be plugging the pacemaker into Iris's usb port and the extra excitement of V10 is putting a greater load on the system:D:D:D:D:D:D

Just FYI, mine has been under it's dust cover in the garage for the last 11 days, 93% status on the battery when I started it earlier today.

Nothing unusual on my battery I have to say. 92% on startup after 16 days unused without any charging.

Did a trip of 50 miles today, in daylight, and the battery dropped to 75% charge. Never happened before so I do wonder if V10 is the culprit or my new NFC mobile and debit cards?
