Re: Battery drain with D800?

I find problems with battery drain when I connect my camera to download files via USB, download usually takes long because I'm using USB 2.0 and backing up to two different locations. What I see is that whenever the camera is plugged to a USB port the meters seem to be always on and that might be draining the batteries. It seems to me that it drains more battery to unload the pics than to actually write them in the cards when I take pictures.
