Pixel 6a battery drain

Hi, I'm wondering why my pixel 6a consistently looses about 10-20% every night even though I'm not using it, it's even worse than my 3a which lost 9-10% at the age of 3 years. Is there a solution to fix this problem?

Tier lists for building a PC.

 

Motherboard tier list. Tier A for overclocking 5950x. Tier B for overclocking 5900x, Tier C for overclocking 5800X. Tier D for overclocking 5600X. Tier F for 4/6 core Cpus at stock. Tier E avoid.

(Also case airflow matter or if you are using Downcraft air cooler)

Spoiler

 

Gpu tier list. Rtx 3000 and RX 6000 not included since not so many reviews. Tier S for Water cooling. Tier A and B for overcloking. Tier C stock and Tier D avoid.

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Spoiler

 

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

Spoiler

 

Storage tier List. Tier A for Moving files/  OS. Tier B for OS/Games. Tier C for games. Tier D budget Pcs. Tier E if on sale not the worst but not good.

(With a grain of salt, I use tier C for OS myself)

Because it still is running all the internet, checks your email, SMS and facebook etc. Bluetooth still searches for devices etc. You probably can disable some of that, though. 

Most people plug it in over night, so this really isn't an issue. And you didn't define night. 4 hours? 8 hours? 12 hours? You also could have faulty apps that use CPU. Remove whatever apps you don't really need. 

 

I don't know the 6a, but my 6Pro has 10x more powerful (based on range) Bluetooth, and Wifi than my previous phone. This is really nice, but it comes at the cost of power. 

 

And the % likely doesn't mean anything. Same way a car showing half tank, doesn't mean exactly half. Going from 100% to 90% most likely is a different amount of energy than from 30% to 20%. This % is just based on voltage and maybe some algorithm added to ESTIMATE available energy. In addition the battery may not provide all capacity. 100% of nominal capacity could be only 90% of actual capacity. The manufacturer shows you whatever they want to show you. 

 

Whenever I'm near a power source (wireless on all my desk, or plug by my bed, or in my car) I just re-charge. Never need to worry.

Usage doesn't sound like a problem. Mine uses 40% overnight when going to sleep to waking up, problem here seems that it varies so much. Mine is 40% every night. The difference between 10 and 20 percent is huge. Maybe just early days of while your phone "learns" how to manage itself as many people say new Pixels do, that "it's normal."
