[HELP] GE Digicam J1470S DRAINING BATTERY EVEN SWITCH OFF

Leaving my fully-charged Li-ion battery mounted in my GE Digicam J1470S turned off for 2 days, emptied my battery?

Is this normal? With your digicam, do you have problems like this?
It's brand new and I already send it to the store where i bought it, they already change the battery but still the same... Their tech guy says it normal which is opposite in my side. I need your opinion and how ABOUT your camera too?... thanks in advance..

Nikon 1 J1

This has happened to me with a Nikon Coolpix camera. Its battery was also depleted in a few days while the camera was turned off. Happened just three months after buying, so got my money back. A defective chip...

Suggestion

Are you sure that your battery is not draining by itself outside the camera in 48 hours? That's how they often die. Get a cheap digital volt meter and check what the battery is doing by itself.

Also, old batteries do not hold as much charge.
