    I've owned the Tosh SD-P2000 portable for a little over a month now. I've noticed a peculiar issue-

    If I leave the battery attached to the unit for >48hours, it goes totally dead, and requires the full six hours to recharge. Unit is off for this entire time (i.e. it's just sitting in the bag). If I disconnect the battery from the unit, it holds a charge just fine. In this case, battery capacity is fine, too- I get 3-4 hours run time out of a charge.

    Anyone else notice this? I didn't realize this unit had such a high leakage current.

    Hello Todd,

    Yes, this problem occurs with both the SD-P2000 and
    the previous SD-P1000. I have no solution other than
    to disconnect the battery when not in use.
