SRAM Force AXS battery draining

Hi everyone, apologies if this has been posted previously, I have an issue with the battery on my rear derailleur draining even when the bike is stationery and not in use. Fully charged battery attached to the rear derailleur, bike not used for 10 days and set off for a ride only to discover battery was completely flat. Does anyone have any suggestions of what I can check might be causing the power drain?

How stationary is stationary? If the derailleur senses movement (say, bumping into the bike), it “wakes up”, which uses power, though I’d think it wouldn’t be that much.

Fully charge the battery, then remove the battery for 10 days. Is it charged or dead afterwards?

Good luck.

On edit: you should ask a mod to move this to bike mechanics sub forum.

Battery drain or just battery gone bad?

Did you solve this?
