I have Metz 58 AF-2 which I use very infrequently. I am starting to get the impression that when the unit is turned off, it is still draining batteries.

Should it be doing this?

Thanks

I have a Metz 36 and never noticed a problem. The rechargeable batteries might have depleted over time, where the Duracells don't, but I blamed that more on that set of batteries.

I have a Godox I keep for a spare, and it might go a year with the batteries. They don't seem to drain.
