Is anyone else having issues with charging with the grip? Mine only ever seems to charge 1 battery, no matter how long I leave it on charge. There are two charge lights on the grip, only the right one ever lights up.

At first I thought it was because only 1 battery was a genuine canon battery, but it wasn't that.. swapping positions in the grip, or having 2 non canon batteries in the grip makes no difference.

Also the batteries never seem to reach 100%, they get to 98-99% - on the canon external charger they get to 100%

I'm using a SATECHI 90W PD Usb charger.

Some 3rd party batteries appear to have issues charging in the grip.

Even the very popular Neewer LP-E6NH have issues. This has been reported to Neewer, but they just sent me another two. Not really bothered as they work superbly and charge just fine with supplied charger.

Luckily the grip I bought from Canon came with a free spare battery.
