Phantom Drain much reduced?

I’ve not been keeping detailed records but it seems like phantom drain on my M3LR is much reduced. During lockdown 1 I think I was losing about 1% every 2 days without sentry enabled. At the moment it feels like I’m losing about 1% a week, which is impressively low. Like I said I didn’t keep actual data, so was wondering if anyone else has noticed this large improvement.?

Same here, never used sentry and the drain when parked up for long periods has always* been low, perhaps 1% a week, if that.


* The exception was when there was a problem with the esim, that caused the car to stay awake for hours each day, now seemingly fixed with the switch to the Dutch esim.

Ours averages around 1%/day. But SoC is constantly fluctuating so not a reliable indicator. I have seen -4% on some days, followed by +4% on another. I also think some usage patterns make a difference, such as where the car is parked.

Mine is also pretty low, I find that it loses around 1-2% on the first night, mainly due to the battery getting cold, and then seems to stay the same.
