    I've got the factory xt battery in my battery grip along with a 1200mah. its been on the last notch on the battery meter for about two weeks worth of constant use and it still wont die!

    just the opposite for me. the battery meter will be full forever. once it gets to half full, its starts going downhill. kinda like most car's i've owned.

    Yeah, mine stays at full and maybe 3/4. Once it goes below half I haven't got much time left... I guess it's the difference between lithium and nimh?

    I swear I've done like 3 shoots in one weekened and probably took like 3k pictures and I think I went from a full charge to one bar, which then lasted like two weeks of normal shooting, if not more.
