The BG-C10 Battery Grip for Canon 70D & 80D from Vello is a battery grip designed for use specifically with the Canon EOS 70D or 80D DSLR camera, and accepts one or two Canon LP-E6 batteries. With two batteries installed, your shooting time is effectively doubled. Moreover, when one battery is drained, it can be removed and recharged while you continue shooting with the other battery. The BG-C10 can also run off of six AA batteries, when using the included AA battery tray (rechargeable batteries recommended). It can also be used with the Canon AC Adapter Kit ACK-E6, which provides for an uninterrupted power supply.
The design of the grip offers a comfortable and secure way in which to hold your DSLR, especially in the vertical position. To facilitate shooting when held vertically, the BG-C10 comes with a vertical shutter release button, as well as AF control buttons, and a main dial. The BG-C10 is designed with an anti-slip rubber grip to further improve handling, and a tripod socket to mount your camera directly to a tripod or mounting plate. The grip also includes a drawstring pouch to protect whichever battery holder is not in use.
The BG-C10 will not work with Duracell brand alkaline batteries.
