WCO battery not doing well in the cold

Not sure what is actually going on but with the weather getting below freezing now, at night, my WCO battery is moving down over 4% per 24 hours. Should I be requesting a replacement cam at this point?

Samsung S20 Utra
Android 10: Wyze App Beta 2.16.14

WCO Base Station

Cam V2 Plugin Version
Sensor Plugin Version
Band Plugin Version 1.3.78
Scale 1.1.4 Plugin Version 1.9.7

Are you running with the “Night Vision IR Lights” turned ON in Advanced Settings? That will be an extra draw

I do not use the night vision, do not want any lights on that would attract attention to the cam.

I posted 3 weeks ago that my WCO went from about 2% a day battery consumption to 3 - 4%. Since then I did turn on the new schedule for motion-only. It did NOT increase consumption which was weird.

It actually stayed close to 3% per day on most days. The past few days that has deteriorated to 4%.

90 days was the advertised expectation. With night vision on that should still be what, 80 days?

My WCO started at 2%, so 50 days max. I am down to 25 days???!@!@

If my situation is not normal, then a replacement is probably in order. If it is normal, maybe Wyze needs to offer a recall with a refund!!??
