I got the D800E package from B&H and it included the same battery.

I charged it the other day and stuck it in my bag. After seeing your post, I went to check it.

At first the camera powered up fine and showed full charge.

After a few test shots, probably two or three minutes, I checked the display and the BP indicator was flashing and the battery level indicator was empty - BTW I had the battery in the accessory grip with no other battery in the camera.

After turning off/on the camera, same display, although the camera functioned.

I then turned off the camera and it sat for about 5 minutes. I went to turn it back on and it wouldn't power up. I removed and reinstalled the battery and the camera powered up, but the display still showed no charge.

I'm going to try and charge it again and see what happens.

But, needless to say, if it's the same it's going back to B&H and I'm getting the OEM battery.

Sounds like a hit or miss with this particular battery.  I will also request the OEM battery from B&H.
