I've had my Meike for about a week now. I have only the one battery which is in the grip. I've noticed that it seems to lose about 2% of charge over 24 hours with everything turned off and no activity. I plan to take the battery out of the grip and leave it overnight and check what the loss has been in those circumstances. A loss of 2% doesn't look like it will be a problem and I don't know at this stage whether it is normal or somehow related to the grip.
In all other respects I love the grip. The handling is transformed, The Meike seems solid enough and fits well. There is no reverse function of the Command and Sub-Command dials.
