HP Spectre x360 Late 2016 Battery Draining while turned off

HP Spectre x360 13t
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, I recieved by HP Spectre x360 13 inch late 2016 around the end of December 2016.  Ever since I unpackaged and opened the laptop I've noticed a very annoying thing that was happening while the laptop was off...the battery life was magically draining down 1-10% a day ! Which is astounding becasue being a previously laptop owner (macbook) I've never experienced such problem.   Is it a hardware issue or software issue ? Please help.

Theres already over 50 pages of this issue being reported by pretty much everyone with this computer. If you scrolled down then you would see it, bit here it is...

The link in the first post links to the bigger thread about the problem, which got closed.

Anyways can you please advise what model number you have? If you aren't sure then did yours come with or without a stylus pen?

Also ignore Ronald's response. There's nothing wrong with your battery. Some have tried all those steps and it doesn't fix it. He is no help.
