Can anyone comment/report on battery drain issues on their Pixel Vertax BG-E11 battery grip for the 5D3? I charged up 4 LP-E6's last week (all official, no knockoffs) and put them in my 7D and 5D3 grips (attached to their respective bodies). They sat stored in the cameras inside a bag for 7-8 days. Then last night I had a gig; I pull out the 5D3 and the battery level had only 2-bars, and quickly dropped to 1-bar.
Both the 5D3 body and the grip were switched OFF while in storage. The grip was also OFF during my shoot, as I was doing landscape orientation shots. Within 45 minutes of shooting I had to swap batteries as they were fully drained. I pulled out the 7D, turned it on, and it was fully charged. I swapped the batteries into my 5D3, and it too showed a full charge.
I completed the gig with no issues, but this really got me worried that the Vertax grip has a battery drain. I'm doing a controlled test this week with fresh batteries to see what happens after a few days of storage.
Has anyone else noticed this battery drain issue or done any tests?
