Battery drain

Hi guys, new to the site. Only signed up yesterday. I seem to be having a problem with my battery drain. Had the battery tested, and it was 100% charged but not working greatly, and it showed I needed a new battery, anyway £300 lighter today, well £159 due to a sale on them, car started first time, took it for a drive for the first time and sounded lovely. Anyway, after shopping came home, and left it 3 hours, went to go for another drive and wouldn’t start up. Can anyone help me please? Crying or Very sad

Dont think there's enough years left on planet Earth to read up on battery drain issues on a FFRR Rolling with laughter

Battery voltage when running?

Flattening a battery that quickly is tricky, unless it’s not charging, check the alternator. There is nothing that can't be fixed with a hammer😜😜

Does seem to die too quickly to be a drain? When my FSR failed (had 2 on my FF now in 10 years of ownership) it used to drain over a matter of 5-7 days, certainly not a few hours?

the drain i had on the bluetooth module meant it was more often than not too low to start the car the next day.

I would check charge voltage with engine running is 14 volts plus.
Common fails are FSR , water ingress in NSR boot area and headlight wipers not parking or faulty.
I would charge it and drive it for a bit and check it starts after first stopping and disconnect following the correct procedure. Reconnect after your 3 hours and then try and start. If starts ok then leave for a few hours and try again having been connected , if it then fails it’s a case of parasitic battery drain procedure

what did it do when you tried to start it after leaving it for 3 hours? click only, nothing, turned over slowly etc?
when batteries fail they seem to go almost instantly when a cell fails. you new battery could be a duffer?
for a drain to flatten it beyond starting in 3 hours its a big one, like leaving your lamps on or something.
