I got 2 LP-E6N with the 90D and after 2 months fully charged batteries are drained.

Hmm. My 70D uses LP-E6 batteries, of which I own two, one Canon and one 3rd-party. While I can't say for sure I have seen self-discharge, it would explain a couple of issues I have had where I arrive at a photo destination and the battery in the camera is completely discharged -- I always assumed I had left the camera on without checking the auto power-off setting. (Even with auto power-off, the camera may power on if bumped while in a bag or pack.)

Testing this correctly requires charging a battery and then leaving it unused for a while, with a note showing date and time of last charge. I may have to do that.
