question

Is the HLD-7 Battery Grip rechargeable
Asked by: Anonymous
No.The grip is able to hold one extra battery inside it, but it is not possible to charge the battery in the grip. You would have to use your standard external charger to charge it. The grip does have an optional AC adapter to power it for studio type applications, but the AC power adapter will not charge the battery.
