Charge your camera grip

The built-in battery has been partially charged at the factory, but you may need to recharge it before using your camera grip.

Charge your camera grip in the correct temperature: 0°C – +60°C. If the temperature is outside this range and your camera grip is connected to the wall outlet, all the indicator lights blink fast.

  1. Plug a compatible charger (sold separately) into a wall outlet, or connect your camera grip to a compatible computer with a USB cable.
  2. Connect the micro-USB end of the cable to the charger connector on your camera grip.

    The indicator lights switch on and 1 indicator light blinks steadily while the battery is charging, showing you the progress. When the battery is fully charged, all the indicator lights stay on for 15 minutes. Charging the camera grip fully may take up to 3 hours.

    Charger connector is on right side of camera grip.
  3. When the battery is full, disconnect the charger from your camera grip, then from the wall outlet.

    When you unplug a charger, hold and pull the plug, not the cord.

Check the battery level

  1. Press the power indicator key. The indicator lights switch on for 3 seconds, showing you the remaining battery level. Each indicator light represents 25% of the battery capacity.
