Increased Battery drain since applying the Firmware update

I had the same experience on my Voyage. Manually applied the new update on Wednesday night. Voyage wasn't used until I turned it on this morning (Friday) and battery level showed near empty. My Voyage is permanently in airplane mode.

I did add three or four books to the Voyage just after I updated the firmware. I don't think that indexing the four books would have caused such a quick drain, but maybe it was stuck for awhile on one of the books. I did check to see if it was still indexing when I noticed the battery level and it wasn't.

I'm charging it now and am hoping this is an anomaly. I'll report back when I know more.
An update on this topic.
Having gotten rid of the book which refused to index, the battery on my well-used 6th Gen PW is still draining much faster than before (whilst being used with the same settings & for the same amount of time per day as before).

I repeated the check for un-indexed books & there were none.

Have now got 5.9.4 on my PW2, PW3 and KOA2.

I like the clock. I record how long I've been reading for and so I use the clock to know when I start and stop. It's not a big deal but prior to this I was always tapping to get the menu (and clock) and sometimes advancing a page (or going to the toc) by mistake. A minor irritation but one I'm glad to be rid of.

It would be nice if we could have the black-on-white mode on non-Oasis Kindles. It really is a killer feature for me.

I love how many people say feature XYZ is a feature I need to have when they didn't have it and didn't even think about it until it was released for a different model Reader.

Well it's similar to how I love my car heated seats in the winter, the cruise control, various gauges, sensors and alarms.

Did I miss them decades ago, no, but I sure would now.
