So I fixed my camera suffered from big battery drain when off.
All you need is to open it and put a piece of insulator between backup battery and metal frame, where was shortcut between + and -.
I used piece of 35mm camera film stiff enough to press between metal frame and battery + surface.
See attached photo.

Thanks for the share.
Just trying to understand how does this insulator helps with the power drain? was there some kind of short circuit?

Thanks for the share. My cam is always out of power when I want to use it.
Have to say that I am very disappointed about it and feel I have wasted the money.

I found that this mod was already done in my camera by manufacturer or seller. Black foil was added between radiator and backup capacitor.

I have this problem and some defect in the picture taken(black shadow at top right corner). to be honest I am quite disappointed with xiaomi QC for this particular product. mic problem, focus issue, battery drain, and that problem of mine. even if they are easily fixed I still feel rather disappointed..
