Same here. for 2.5 years i'm using one original grip. I'm on my third D7000 now (6k actuations), I sold my second one with 18k actuations, and the first one I had to return after 3 weeks due to not focusing correctly (4k actuations - learning curve). All three cameras were used with one original grip - it still goes strong. I do not use turn on/off switch though - it's always on for me. No battery discharge or any other problems.
