Left controller battery life problems?

Is anybody having any problems with  their left controller dying a lot quicker than the right controller? I’ve replaced the batteries in the left 3 times today and the right controller has only lost about 10% of its power even though I use the right controller a lot more.

    No that doesn’t sound normal. My right controller actually drains a little quicker. I’m not sure if that’s perhaps because it’s my more dominant hand (right handed), so gets more use.

    Yes my Left is dying a lot quicker, happened three times now and i'm using brand new 1.6V Piscell Rechargeable batteries.

    Looked now and right controller still has 52% and left is dead.
    Will be exchanging controllers when back in stock at
