Battery degradation in shutdown mode.

So i went to my hometown for diwali and to attend a wedding. Didn’t knew how much time it would take me so decided to shutdown my Ather this time.

This was my first shutdown in 6 months. If i have to go for a week or less i generally don’t use the shutdown mode if i have enough power.

Below are the screenshots.

The battery was at 93 percent when i shut it down. I usually ride in sports mode as shown.

Came back after 18 days. I thought atleast 15 percent battery would have gone. But to my surprise it went down only by 1 percent.

The mode was obviously defaulted to ride.

1 percent battery loss in 18 days. I’m very impressed with this. :crown:


And mode changed from sport to ride

You know you or someone else could very easily toggle the mode switch by mistake when the scooter is turned off right?

Yes, sometime after shutdown and restart the mode switches to ride mode, quite often happens in gen 1.5 scooters.


Your phone’s battery charge did not go down even 1%. And even the time is also same! What a coincident…!!! :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

I took both the screenshots at the same time. First one before the app updated.


After 21 hours 2 percent battery gone without shutdown.


This should be the expected/ideal behaviour. But due to some bug or unclear instructions to some users, people face the issue of huge battery drop in shutdown mode.

Thanks for sharing!
