      I use this when shooting interviews every week. Whenever the camera is on a tripod it s great to be plugged into a power source. If you aren't sure if the T2i will take AC power, look on the side of the camera below the SD card slot, there is a little rubber flap, that is where the cord to the AC adapter comes out of. I don't know why Canon doesn't just include this with the T2i. The quality of plastic is poor and the cord that goes into the camera is really flimsy. I haven't tried a 3rd party version of this but I don't think it would be much different. Great to have, I use it all the time.

      This is a great product if your use your camera to capture video, in fact I made some interviews using this camera and was able to shoot for 6 or more hours without any battery problems. The mini cable that connects to what seams to be a fake battery that's inserted into de camera, seams to be some what delicate.

          Comments about Canon ACK-E8 AC Adapter Kit:

          I purchased this product to extend the possibilities of time lapse shots in studio and it's a complete game changer. I can now run multi-day/week/month time lapse shots without the need to recharge and swap out batteries. It also works in conjunction with the Canon battery grip. Both my 650d and battery grip have small doors to allow the wire to pass through without kinks or alterations.All the pieces are solid. The battery shaped adapter that plugs into power cord is very light and obviously can not handle much abuse. With careful handling and storage, this kit will last for years.

          Great for use when taking star trail and time lapse photography. Do not have to worry about the battery dying. Was able to take over 1000 photos.
          Would not want to risk buying a knock off brand, recommend to buy the Canon Brand.

                              I like that this kit was available with all the components together. I am using an older model Canon T2i for making stop motion shorts, and exchanging charged batteries would be impossible because it would mean unseating the camera from the tripod.

                              With this accessory kit, I can have continuous power with no worries, and keep returning to snap frames at any time.

                              It is a bit strange that power can only be input into the camera through a faux battery element.

                                i just used this for 5 days straight on a timelapse on a t2i, and then popped it straight into my t3i for another 2 days of timelapse. worked like a charm, and still works.

                                to nitpick, i wish the cable were a tiny bit longer...but that's what extension cords are for. so, no big deal.

                                i'll buy a lot of things generic brand, but in this case (mostly b/c of awful negative reviews on 3rd party ac adapters) i feel more comfortable relying on the brand name to endure working consecutive overnight shifts.

                                I researched alternate AC adapters for the T3I and I simply found that most would not put out the minimum required power output.. I did not think this would fair well with the camera so I just bought the recommended AC adapter. anything else is supposed to void your warranty anyway...

                                The cord is very conveniently long!!!

                                  Works as described. Has an adaptor that inserts into the battery compartment and a cable that allows you to plug into an AC outlet.
                                  The only thing I do not like is due to the design of the camera, there is no ac connection on the camera I use so this is a great work around.

                                    Even with an external battery grip I found that batteries just didn't last long enough for a long video shoot. This was the obvious choice and all I can say is that it just works.

                                    I took of one star simply because I would have liked the camera end of the power connection to be removable from the power pack - that way you could use other power sources in future - perhaps a bigger battery pack?

                                    Otherwise - a very good deal.

                                        I use this to shoot photos from a window inside the house of birds etc.
                                        I also use a remote control on a cannon T4i that suits my situation .

                                        I am using this AC adapter during video shoots where watching battery level is to much of a hassle.Seems a little bit cheapy in some aspects, but a respectable build. Would still choose it again over an aftermarket brand!
