Republic App battery usage

#1

I am noticing since the last R.W app update(3.20.2.1) that the app is being reported as using much more battery than previously.

My Pixel XL system reported 4% before, but it is now saying 8%. (with no app usage)
(when I had my Nexus 5X testing out R.W for 2 months, it never went higher than 1 - 2%)

Perhaps this is due to the new Verified Hotspot feature where the app is doing more things in the background like scanning for wifi to connect to? (even though I am on wifi already?)

Just curious as to what other users phones report the R.W app is using for battery.

Just checked my Moto E4. It is reporting 1% usage today. I have the latest version and i was on wifi for the majority of the day.
