The Canon BG-E18 Battery Gripis designed for use with the Canon EOS Rebel T6i and T6s DSLR Cameras. When installed, it can accommodate one or two rechargeable LP-E17 batteries and creates a greater surface area than what is provided by an EOS Rebel T6i or T6s alone. Aside from being able to double available battery capacity and decreasing the potential for a connected camera to fall out of hand, the BG-E18 Battery Grip, with its integrated shutter release button, offers the ability to hold and trigger either an EOS Rebel T6i or T6s in the vertical shooting position without having to turn one's wrist. This increases overall comfort and the ability to capture images in the desired orientation.
This battery grip does not support a battery magazine for AA batteries, or an AC adapter kit.
