"D800(E) grip issue..... Need input...."

I have my D800E and have a Meike battery grip. Well I just noticed in the last day or so that the green light would come on on the back of the camera randomly even though the camera has been turned off already for a few minutes or longer..... Now if I use the shutter lock, I think it resolves the issue, not sure as I haven't left it locked much. Also die to this concern, I've noticed the battery in the grip (Nikon battery) was fully charged about two days ago and now is at 37% with only 211 pics taken on it.... I'm thinking the grip's electronics are failing and I'm now thinking about just biting the bullet and buying the Nikon MB-D12 Grip.

Anyways, my question is now that some of you have had grips for awhile (Nikon and any other brand), have any of you had issues like this??? I seen the post awhile back where the internal gears stripped out on one of these Meike grips, but I haven't had any issues there... yet. Anyways does the Nikon version's buttons feel the same as the ones on the D800(E) body??? Thx for any input guys/gals...
