Re: NX300 Battery Drain when off?

Why not just remove the battery when you're storing it then, if it bothers you? Mine drains too, but I'll either pop in a freshly charged battery (I have 3 after all) or plug in the micro usb charger (I have many plugged in for cellphones, etc.). No biggie.

There are metal contacts that are conductive that the batteries are constantly pressed up against. It drains batteries. For example, that's why electronics and remotes that are shipped with batteries in them have a tab pull somtimes to remove the barrier which prevents battery drain and operation.
