Does anyone know if the battery from the 1D IV will work on the 1D X?

Yes, the LP-E4 battery (for the 1DIV, 1DsIII, maybe others) works fine in the 1D X. 

There's a 'minor' issue with the respective chargers, though - the old charger (that came with the 1DIV) can only charge the new battery (LP-E4N for the 1D X) to about 90% capacity.

I haven't noticed anything more than a small drop due to the normal self-discharge of a Li-ion battery. How long are you letting it sit unused?

LP-E4 and LP-E4N are interchangeable. Also noticed recently some improper discharge, but camera had not been used in two weeks and it has been freezing cold over here.

I'd contact Canon Support.  I can shoot a couple of hundred shots, let it sit for a week, shoot another hundred shots, and still have three bars on the battery indicator.

Yes...my experience is similar to neuro....something must be wrong with your battery
