I got 400 shots on the first charge, and the battery wasn't fully depleted, it showed the 'half full' indicator.

Over 800 shots and rolling

I shot over 800 high res jpegs at the USC/ND football game . . . transferred them to my PC and the battery indicator is still at max . . .
I did buy a Lenmar DLM400 (about $24 on the net) but, other than testing, have yet to need it.

Got about 400 DNG shots then sat down for lunch and started to edit. It showed a full battery when I first sat down. 30 min. later it went blank. my bet is the LCD eats up the battery.
regards,
Ken

You are probably correct about the lcd . . . I have the review option turned off.

Well I still have yet to fully know.
I am running with the grip and 2 batteries (second battery is the Impact one from B&H)
I charge before a big shoot now since I dont have spairs, nor know how accurate the indicators are yet.
So fay I have shot up to 200 PEF+jpg and no drop in battery power on a cold night (temp was hovering around 32* and was out for about 2hr shooting a football game)
