• I gave an elemet bolt to a mate and it's 3y old (2018 B/W) and the battery has become total shit. I never used it, and he rarely uses it, anyone else had that?

  • My Bolt is a similar age and the battery life is not nearly as good as it has been in the past. Sometimes I only manage to get 9 hours (with backlight off).

  • Batteries these days like to be kept charged so I wonder if it was left flat for too long and that's caused battery degredation?

  • Did it sit for a long time without being charged? From what I understand lithium ion batteries don't like this. It's quite likely the battery cells have degraded which is why you're seeing worse battery life than a more regularly used unit.
