Left controller battery life problems?

Level 2
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

Same here. Since the controller update, which I got a day before yesterday (because my Quest was shelved for a few months), my left controller is sucking up power like crazy. Has to do something with the update. But, as far as I remember, this also happened before, but a lot less imminent.
