3rd Party Battery Grip Issue

I sent in my Nikon MB-D17 battery grip (genuine) for repair and thought I'd try an off-brand grip while I waited for the turnaround. It fits fine and the D500 detects it, displaying 100% battery life with a fully charged battery installed in it. However, even with the appropriate setting selected to use the grip battery first, the camera uses power from the primary battery first. Anyone else have this issue and a solution?
