2 dud batteries from Canon
4 months ago

I recently bought a 2nd Canon 6d and on placing the battery in the charger, noticed that the orange light went straight to rapid blinking which normally indicates 75% charge. However, 4 hours later it was still doing the same thing. I tried it in the camera and it was as dead as a doornail. I tried a battery from my older 6d and it was fine, both in the charger and in the camera. I took the battery back to Jessops who very obligingly changed it for another. They did say that there had been problems with these batteries, but I've not heard of this personally.
Got the replacement battery home - alas, exactly the same thing occurred.
Has anyone else had battery issues with the 6d?
