s1 atrocious battery life in 4k?

Hi,

I recently switched from G9 to S1. I was able to shoot on G9 for the whole day on one tiny battery. S1 has an identical viewfinder and back screen and batter that is double the size. On my weekend test shoot, I got about 15 minutes of 4k 30fps video on one (original) battery. I usually shoot 5-10s short clips and turn the camera off between them. All power saving options that I could find in the menu are turned on. Is this normal?

cheers
