    Hi - would like to have an idea on vampire drains. I parked my cars for the past 3 days and the average power drain was about 6.6km / day. I did wake the car a 2-3 times a day via android app. As HK is relatively small, I safely may asusme tempreature difference is minimal. Mind to share yours? Thx

    Consistently 3 mi/day when the car is sleeping (i.e. no interaction with the iPhone/Android app).

    Thanks Dennis. That is about 4.8km/day and with no app-interaction. My loss seemed still in acceptable range. By the way, I forgaot to state the initial condition: my car had initial range of 334km (209mi). Not sure the loss is linear or has flattening slope later on.

    Apparently 1% loss per day is acceptable

    Yes, because it used to be 3-4% before they "perfected" Sleep Mode.
