Hi OP

I left my cux in the shed for a little over a week recently and forgot to turn off the breaker, even though I didn't put the alarm on I still got a fair bit of battery drain so what your describing sounds about right. 

Personally when leaving the bike at home I prefer to put the steering lock on but remove the battery and put it in the house, if someone wanted to steal it I'm not sure the pretty quiet alarm or locking rear wheel would do a whole lot and I'd rather keep hold of the battery given the cost!

But then I haven't tried the app as don't think it works in the UK so don't use the tracking function.

@328isport Thanks for that mate.

Mine seems to be very erratic.  I've been keeping an eye on it to see if the results I've previously seen are constant, however, one day last week when I had the bike at work it drained around 15% through the day just sitting there in the car park with the alarm on. It wasn't a particularly cold day either as I know the cold can make things worse.  That was over a 9 hour period.  The past 3 days its been in my shed with the alram on and it is only down to 96% which is the least drain I've ever seen.

I use the app no bother in the UK, I'm up in Newcastle, and it shows me all the relevant battery data, location data, historical rides etc.
