Battery use depends on a lot of factors. They boil down to the connection between camera and hub, and how much strain you put on the system.

 

If your cameras are having a hard time communicating with the hub, they will consume energy they negotiate a link.

 

If you cameras are constantly recording then that too will eat juice.

 

Within those issues there are subtle variations, such as how long the cameras are recording and lights are on.
