How long does the oculus 2 last while on standby mode?

Hello, I have just recently noticed that whenever I put the headset on standby mode, after 5 hours it is usually depleted and I have to recharge it again. How long does it usually take for a headset to get depleted on standby mode? Is this only my headsets or is it normal?

    Hey there! Do you find that the headset depletes quickly even when at a full charge? Is the headset stored in a way that it may be bumped or disrupted and power back on at all? If you find that when storing the headset securely and safely, it continues to drop quickly in stand-by mode, please click here to submit a ticket so that we can look into this with you. Thanks!

    It is absolutely normal. Just turn it off completely (hold power button for 3 sec.) when you are done playing.
    Looks like this is not normal and i will have to do some observation.

    Fully discharging over 5 hours of standby is definitely not normal. My headset loses 5 to 10% over about 24 hours on standby. Sometimes a bit more if there are multiple app updates. It does sometimes discharge quickly if there’s an OS update (it seems to stay fully powered after updating).

    My quest 1 lasts a few days on standby so it's definitely an issue.

    Well my friend and i got each a Quest 2 couple weeks ago and both of them completely drain the battery over night if we leave them on stand by. I also read this on other sites, so i assumed that this was normal.
