Resolved! Chargers for speedlite batteries

occasional overexposure with Speedlites

I've seen several threads about exposure issues with speedlites but none that are quite what my issue is. I have a 580EX and a 600EX-RT.  I use them on a 5D Mk II and a 70D.  Regardless which flash and which body, the same thing occurs.  I shoot in m...
