[SOLVED] Battery drain when powered off

Post by srandoux »

Hello,

I notice that when the AI deck is connected to the bitcraze (v2.1) and I leave it poweroff (not connected to usb), the battery discharges in a few hours.
Is it a know issue?

Thanks

Hi,

This is surprising since, when OFF, the Crazyflie will cut power to the deck.

Have you confirmed that the battery drain is indeed greater when the deck is installed or not on the same Crazyflie? (to exclude possibility that this Crazyflie has a problem).

We will be making measurement on our side to test as well.

Hello,

I did more tests with and without the AI deck and you are right, there is no issue with the battery.

I don't know what happened initially. Maybe user interface issues (I updated everything to the latest version).

So apologies and I can confirm that with or without the AI deck battery does not drain when the device is powered off.

Best Regards,
Thanks
