    I tested couple things and when i fully charge it and take it off to power off and leave itll slowly drain my battery even when off. ONLY way I get it not to is to take off the joy cons. Is there a easier method?

    It happens to me too, even without joycons attatched. And sometimes it shows more batery charge after shuting it off.

    Edit: When I say turn off i mean it (i never use sleep mode)

    is it off or in sleep mode.

    If it is in sleep mode, the system is still on, but the it isn't displaying anything. The system processes are still running, which drains battery

    It's off. Hold power button and click power off

    Idk then. That's puzzling. Chances are that when it is off, the battery is settling. Sometimes with my phone this happens. I have to let it run out of battery completely and then leave it on the charger for like 5 hours. :/

    From wikipedia:

    Self-discharge is a phenomenon in batteries in which internal chemical reactions reduce the stored charge of the battery without any connection between the electrodes.

    OR

    An evil force resides in your switch and leeches your battery :evil:
