Battery Issue: OE Battery discharges in seconds...

Hi all,

I've encountered a new kind of battery issue where my D500 seems to immediately discharge both of my Nikon batteries. These are not 3rd party batteries.
Regardless of if I charge them in the Nikon charger or my Watson Duo Charger, as soon as I put them in the body and turn it on, I can watch the power bars go from max to 0 in a matter of 3-5 seconds.

Anyone know what's causing this? At first I was thinking it was a bad battery because only a recently purchased Nikon OE battery was experiencing it. But recently the battery that came with my D500 has begun doing the same thing.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
