    So, pulled ours back out yesterday after they had been put up after being fully charged on 9/2. Batteries for both mine and Mrs Flush's were at 98% so less than 1% degradation per week.

    Thanks for reminding me to check ours. Both were fulling charged on September 5th and now are at 42 and 46 percent. Something up.

    That is a little low.

    Mine are at 54 days since charging while sitting with screen off and it is at 70%

    The other that was returned from Dive Tronix is at 48 days and at 72% (used a lot of battery setting it up again).

    Unfortunately (or fortunately from my perspective as I will be diving again) this test wasn't intentional and will be charging and diving with them next week.

    I purchased both Teric’s from DiveGearExpress in May 2018. We dove in June, July and September and then stored until June 2019. On our trip in July battery life wasn’t very good, Maybe 50% left at the end of each day and now less than 50% after sitting 15 days. I hope the batteries are inexpensive or free.

    That is still under warranty, contact Shearwater and see if they agree that 25% a week is too high (they probably will). I am sure that they will make sure you are satisfied.

    One factor that can make a substantial difference is whether or not the compass function is enabled.

    Correct me if I am wrong but the compass will not be in operation when the watch is off.

    I sent a support request. I'll let you all know how it turns out.

    Shearwater wasted no time in getting back to me and it looks like they'll be heading for warranty service. That's why you buy Shearwater.

    Shearwater’s service, DiveTronix, and Richard are the best! Things should be much improved when your Terics come home.
