Is it normal for SX OS to drain more battery than original firmware?

    I've noticed when I'm playing games or leaving the console in sleep mode that it will drain more battery on SX OS than it would if I were using the stock firmware. Is this normal? I did a test and I got about 2h 20 min playing Zelda BOTW (full brightness, full volume, wifi on) when playing on SX OS. I remember doing the same test on stock firmware a while back and got over 3 hours.

    No, it is not normal. Sx os does not run anything in the background, don't allow sys-module, unlike atmosphere, which does allow sys-modules. It should take the same amount of battery.
    Try testing with stealth mode turned off, it might make a difference.
