S1 Battery issue - the continuing story

This is a reprise of an old thread.

Did the battery drain issue of the S1 ever get sorted out?  I have not followed that thread.

If I don’t use my S1 for more than a week the battery will be flat when I go to use it. This is a huge battery by battery size metrics and other cameras that I have don’t have that issue.  This is the Panasonic oem battery I am talking about.

For example my Olympus E-M1does not get a lot of use and 3 or 4months since last switched on the battery is still showing “full charge”.

I can understand that some battery might be needed to keep some essential functions live - such as date.  But this should be a micro current like other camera bodies and like my Olympus (with more compact battery) can be virtually not noticeable for months.
