Many early ones did. Later ones were the opposite.
My TTL which I've had for a year i can leave on several times over night
and get some real shooting done with it.
But my 7 year old non TTL if i left it on (off B) over night just once
it would conk out on me right off the bat when shooting the next day.

Either camera i have spare batteries along with me for.

I've got spare batteries in many of my coats and camera bags. Spare
batteries all over the place.

Because i like to head out on long afternoons out walking with an M6.
