New a99ii user here with an after market battery grip. Issue I have is it shows the two battery levels in the upper right screen but the battery drain is on battery one with the second battery full. When battery one is exhausted the camera shuts down. I have a Sony a900 with the battery grip and it works perfect with a combined battery amount shown. My question.....is this a camera issue or a battery grip issue? Should I trash the after market grip and get the Sony grip? Thanks.

I use the Sony grip with my A77ii and it switches between the batteries no problem. I have heard anecdotally that after market grips and batteries can cause problems on Sony cameras, although I've never experienced it myself. The Sony grips are very expensive and so I'd try and get hold of one to test before buying - maybe your local dealer would help if it helps to get him a sale.
