Is it big percentages?
No nothing drastic. Yesterday it used about 2 or 3 % over 10 hour’s parked at work.
That sounds a lot over 10 hours. I have parked my car at Gatwick Airport on Sunday 17th for a couple of weeks and the app is showing 1% drop in 48 hours. Even that sounds a bit more than I expected. I would log your battery levels for a while to get a clear picture because that doesn't sound right.

Ok thanks, I will keep an eye on it. Is you ‘protect HV battery’ deactivated too?

Could it be the heat, maybe fan running to keep battery cool ?

Yes. I can't see it makes too much difference.

It hasn’t happened today; I think it might just have been down to it being so hot and people from work wanting to have a sit in it. The air conditioning is way more effective than in my ID3. Stands to reason it would consume more battery!
