Michael, is that correct? I definitely noticed high battery drain with my 41L on v30, downgrading to v29 fixed this.
Maybe I should try v30 again?

Hmm, perhaps I should just try it on my 41L again and see what happens...

I am running my DM41L with V30 since I have bought it in February 2020 and haven`t noticed any high drain of the battery. On my other DMxxL I have downgraded to V29.

Hi All,

As a small update, I monitored the current drawn in v29 and v30 on my DM-41L and I cannot see any noticeable difference between them. I shall complete the same test with v31 tomorrow but I'm not expecting anything dramatic to show up...

That's because the issue affected models other than the DM41 a lot more :)

That makes sense!

Can you give any detail about just what the issue was and how it caused increased power consumption?

I don't actually know all the details but it'll be something along the lines of the CPU not putting another chip to sleep before going to sleep itself.
