Has anyone else experienced this problem?
Recently the batteries seem to drain quicker.
The battery seems to lose contact while the camera is on, sometimes in the middle of writing to the card.Tapping or jiggling the battery will cause it to come back on. When it does, it will sometimes show less than full power and then will show full power. It will fluxate between full and less than full.
I charge the batteries after use, and I do full refresh monthly.

I'm not sure about the loss of capacity unless your batteries are getting older and have seen a lot of use, but I have come across the problem with them losing contact:
If you look at the battery pack you'll see there are three screws holding it to the plastic cover that locks to the camera body. If these screws have started to come loose then there may be enough free play to let the battery slip away from the contacts - it generally happens when shooting in portrait mode.
I've also heard that it's possible for the screws that hold the metal plate the plastic cover locks into can come loose, so it's worth checking those, too.
Hope that's some help,
