[ problems with R8 battery running down relatively quickly
  even though the camera isn't really being used. ]

Also note that rechargeable lithium cells run down by themselves
during storage, even if you don't use them at all.

It is inherent in the technology, and because you are stuck
with the R8's custom battery, there's effectively no work around.

So best to give the R8 motor batteries a top-up if you haven't
used the camera for a while, even if they were fully charged
when you put the camera away.


Regds,
