I used my Jolla at holidays nearly the same daily hours like at home (v1.1.7.28). These WLANs were ipv4 single stack networks. The device worked about four days. Now at home with dual stack ipv4/6 networks I have 2 days only with a fully loaded battery. There was some stuff with ipv6 in earlier SFOS-Versions (handhaking stuff to often, battery drains). Are these fully fixed or are there another problems not fixed yet?

The problem what caused battery draining earlier was that multicast traffic filtering (WLAN) was disabled for 1.1.4.x but it was re-enabled in 1.1.6.x. (and multicast filtering will break the IPv6 connectivity when the router advertisement will expire while display is off).

I don't think the reason is IPv6 itself but something else.. but for sure I can have this tested.
