The off switch on the grip is only for the grip shutter release and other controls - does not turn the power off.

I would not reccommend mixing two different batteries as they may have different voltages/etc. although most likely will do no harm. I am of the assumption that the two batteries are in parallel with each other as if I put a fully charged battery in with a half charged battery, in a day or so they both seem to have the same percentage charge which is some what of an average.
