I'd suggest you start with a call to Minn Kota and get some numbers. I'm completely cool with learning more but since I have not noticed any power loss, I have no complaint. Regardless, I'm happy to hear what you find out since this interests you. My wild guess for a starting point is that you are not disconnecting your trolling motor at the end of you fishing day. Minn Kota recommends this and very few people do it. The i-pilot may be "GPSing" while it sits in you storage area and running your batteries down, resulting in poorly charged batteries as you start your day. I don't know what your storage and battery charging situation is so it's just a guess. As for "veracity", you decide. All definitions work for me.
