my aftermarket grip tends to drain off the battery more rapidly than the camera alone and i hope i didnt ruin a battery...

it was "dead" so i changed it out with a fresh battery and went shooting. when i got back to my charger i put the depleted battery in the charger (factory canon) and the orange LED started its blinking. after about a day it was still blinking rapidly. usually i can dismount the battery and replace it and it will start charging as its supposed to. not this time...

ive had it in and out of the charger a couple of times and it hasnt started charging like its supposed to...

did i ruin the battery? is there something i can do to "reset" it? i put it in the camera and tried to turn it on thinking maybe it needed another little drain but to no avail...

thanks

See Canon's product advisory for the LP-E6 (external link) - it might help.

i followed the steps listed on the advisory (which is basically what i did prior as evidenced by my original post) and it took 3 times to get it to charge (or appear to charge). it would blink normally for 4-8 blinks then take off like a house a'fire. after the 4th time (6th or 7th time overall) it appears to be correct now...

thanks
