    That's right.
    The P4 has ventilation slots in the battery and the fan keeps air circulating to reduce heat buildup.

    Not sure it's supposed to run all of the time though Meta4. Mine shuts off after a second or two. Then comes on as needed I thought. In fact, I just sent in one P4 because my fan had stopped working at power up. But I think it is supposed to come on at power up and then shut off until it gets warmed up from battery discharge in bird.

    That may be normal Eric. But I don't think it should run solid all the time. Or at least I don't think that would be the normal.
