Even in full power down mode, battery drains fully overnight

This is a brand new battery replaced four days ago. Had the same behavior prior to the replacement. Other ideas on how to correct. Note: full power down mode means hold power button then select power off.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I also have to reset the date/time every time I power it up after the battery is depleted although all of my other settings remain intact. This is also the original model with an OLED screen.

Hi i have the exact same problem. Vita3g completely charged and powered off in airplane mode.

After 1 day power it up its lost 10 percent charge.

After 3 days power it up only 20 percent left

After 5 days its dead.

I changed the battery, no change

I changed the motherboard, no change

Now i left out all the 3g bits and its holding the same charge (50 percent) for the past 3 days.

I ordered a replacement 3g modem from ebay (france) and with the new 3g modem it does not drain anymore.
