I don’t like to keep my robot vacuum charging all the time when its idle. So I have a smart plug which I will turn off when the battery is 80%+ charged. However, I have noticed that even in idle mode, when only thing the vacuum is doing is to remain connected to wifi, it consumes almost 10-13% battery every hour. Check attached images.
I am not sure why it should drain battery so fast in the stand by mode? It just doesn’t make any sense!
I noticed the same thing. It’s difficult to get the device in sleep mode, and once it does, it took my vacuum around two hours for it to detect a low enough battery level to initiate a charging cycle and it has been on since.
I’m hoping that there is something that can be done to make sleep mode less energy consuming because this does not bode well for the overall battery life.
