Battery doesn't stay charged long on EOS 80D

Two Canon batteries provided w/camera when purchased as follows:

 

 

LP-E6N Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.2V - 1865mAh) - CHARGER:  LC-E6 Charger for LP-E6 Battery Pack - EW-EOS80D

 

Batteries seem to lose charge during about an hour of use, don't fully discharge but status will show it's depleting. This happens even w/o lots/any flash use. Usually change them out before reaching about 1 bar.

 

Is there a better battery than what came stock with the camera, or some techinique if it's a memory problem w/battery?

One hour does not sound right.  Are you using the LCD screen a lot?  Are you shooting video?

No, the Canon battery is the best.

Even the 80D manual suggests the battery life is dropped by 2/3 if you use the LCD and have wi-fi turned on.  Don't use the LCD and turn wi-fi off and see if it makes a difference.

Video is another battery killer.
