What is the energy decay speed for different resonator levels?

I know for sure that L1 resonator decays at a rate of 10% a day or 100 XM a day. I have not explicitly tested it for resonators of higher level and now I think it becomes more and more relevant.

All portals decay 15% per day.

Portal Decay

Resonators are powered by XM. Resonators start with a full charge, but the XM store is consumed at a rate of approximately 15% per day.

(Emphasis mine)

Portals used to drain at 10% per day, but it was increased in an update early 2013 to be 15%

That is not nice, try to recharge a lvl 4 portal even as lvl 6 player. I hoped it was not percentage based. –  BanditoBunny Dec 10 '12 at 15:09
    
Maybe stupid question, but what does "per day" mean? Does it mean that at midnight all resonators loose 10% or a day at the time of deployment of the resonator? –  otakun85 May 4 '13 at 21:15
    
@otakun85 I'd open a new question for that, but from anecdotal experience I believe it is the latter - the entire portal drains 15% at the minute that the portal was captured. –  Daenyth May 4 '13 at 23:45
