DSTE MB-D17 Battery Grip. My Battery Drain Problem found.

My grip has been acting up. It seems it could be the culprit to the battery drain problem. The other day I had a charged battery go dead after sitting off for just a day. My battery drain problem had been intermittent since new. So I took out the dead EL18A battery and placed it on my desk. For grins the next morning I reloaded the dead battery and it showed full. Seems It might have dirty contacts or pins aren't alined right. If I pull the battery out I can see the pins in the grip are not perfectly alined. The first 2 pins look lower and dark. Has anyone else witnessed this?
