DP1 Battery drain - Resolved? - firmware Ver2.0

Hey all,

Just wondering if any of the DP1 owner who had the battery drain issue has noticed any difference to the battery life after upgrading to the firmware Ver 2.0.

I always carry around my DP1 but whenever I go to use it, maybe once a fortnight or so, the battery is almost dead or completely dead. But after installing the latest firmware it seems to be holding for much longer to my surprise.

There was no mentioning about addressing the battery issue in the firmware update description and I always thought this was hardware flaw.

Anyone with similar experience?
