I bought the Roku SteamingStick+ in November 2020. It burns through AAA batteries in about one week! I have the streaming stick plugged into the USB port on my bedroom TV. I also own an older StreamingStick+ that is plugged directly into the electrical outlet on my wall. It's in my living room. It has never burned through batteries like the new one does, and I've had it for about 3 years. Do you think the problem lies with how the StreamingStick+ is getting it's power supply ???
I wouldn't expect the power source to be an issue, but with electronics anything's possible. It's generally not recommended to run the Stick from a TV USB port anyway because many of them don't provide enough power to run it properly. The USB 2.0 standard is only 500 mA, and not every set actually meets that level. I always suggest sticking with the provided wall adapter.
