My question is about the LTC6804-1 BMS chip. We are working with these chips for out battery safety. Since couple of days I found out that the chip is draining current even there is no supply or anything else. I attached a picture; you can see a battery with 24V is connected with C12 and C0, like the chip is designed for. And nothing else is connected, just this two pins. And as you can see there is a current flow which I can’t understand.
I tested 3 random Chips with similar results.  Is this normal? Is this leakage current drain a known issue?

Thanks for help in Advance
