Have you noticed that you can connect your phone to the R5 while it’s turned off?

I use it frequently to quickly download selected proofs to share from phone, and leave raw workflow till I reach home. I keep BT on, wifi off, and it doesn't seem to have any obvious impact on battery life

Ok I wasn't sure if image browsing used Bluetooth or Wifi, but you're confirming this only uses BT. I still think it must use up at the battery if it's constantly sending a bluetooth handshake signal. Maybe it doesn't use much power, but if for example I were to leave my camera in my bag for a month, would I come back to a depleted battery?
