How long is the depletion taking? My K-3II was on two bars (top display) last time I used it (GPS always on, logging off except when out walking). It hasn't been used in over a week due to a house move and now it's on one bar.

The GPS is always ON! (GPS track logging is disabled) Oh i'll go to disable the GPS immediatly and prove it.
I will write here the result

TNX guys!
I just turn on the camera and I could see that the battery is not drained . Good news, it must be a problem leaving the camera off for a while without turning off GPS before . I think I could fix this problem with new firmware

Tnx guys!!!

On the K3II, for firmware info you do not hold down the menu button when turning on as earlier models. In the menu , it is the last item in page four/spanner icon. Page 26 in the handbook.
